Find out more about our panel:
Rehmat: I believe everyone deserves to be happy and I've had my own challenges with this, having battled depression for decades. Alchemising my trauma allowed me to finally let go of all the heaviness and say a permanent goodbye to low mood, and I made it my life's work to support other womxn through this powerful healing portal. I draw on my Indian heritage, weaving ceremony into every practice + creating safe containers steeped in ancient Eastern traditions. Some of the modalities I work with include breathwork, energy healing, cacao ceremonies, ayurveda, yoga, creativity + more. I am trauma informed, and have been initiated into the following: Yoga (RYT200), Breathwork, Reiki Master, Safe Spaces Facilitator, Creative Facilitator, Womxns' Circles, Pre & Postnatal Yoga, Safeguarding, Trauma & Childhood Adversity, Trauma & Child Brain Development, Mental Health Support Team Training, Prevent for Practitioners.
We Are We Wear: We are an independent, black-owned business, created in 2019. Our founders, Natalie and Chelsea, quit their jobs and set out on a mission to challenge the culture of unrealistic body standards we face today. Using their combined experience working for one of Britain’s biggest online retailers, they turned their vision into a reality with their inclusive, eco-friendly brand. Starting from a front room in London, We Are We Wear has since established itself as a leader in diversity and sustainability in the fashion industry. We quickly outgrew the box room and now have full office, creative studio, showroom and warehouse in Southbank. We’re extremely proud of the internal team we’ve built over the past 4 years and now have five permanent employees and a couple of freelancers. Our internal team are an incredible collective who believe in who we are as a brand. They are our powerhouse.
We are serious about creating swimwear and lingerie that everyone feels comfortable wearing. That’s why our sizes range from XS to 3XL and bra sizes range from 30A to 44FF. Our expert product developers ensure appropriate shape enhancements are made to create precise fit and comfort for every single size. We are dedicated to creating quality swimwear and intimates with everybody in mind. SS22 saw the launch of our very first menswear collection as we continue to expand our design visions into new product categories. We’re working towards a fully inclusive product range, with our latest collections moving towards a genderless silhouette.

Through everything life has thrown at Erika, one thing has stayed the same and that is her passion to help others. During a random near-death experience in Africa, Erika was saved by her spirit guide, which changed her path forever.
“We all have angels and guardians protecting and sending us messages, and we all have the gift to listen and connect to them. The world is far more magic than we are told to believe.”
Since then, Erika provides the tools for women to tap into their powers and create the life they deserve. Studying spirituality and her certificate as a Master Psychic through Sensei Roy Kyoshi-Goya, has enabled her to strengthen her gifts and channel energy, spirit guides and angels through various spiritual practices. Energy is felt and important self-affirming messages are passed through.
