The dream is reality with Kremi Otashliyska

Mother first and muse second – Kremi Otashliyska is nothing but magic. The Bulgarian-born, Barcelona-raised beauty can speak her mind in four different languages, and knows first impressions aren’t always what they seem. In front of the camera she conjures pure alchemy – posing for greats such as Lindbergh and Feurer – and is a runway favourite of Chanel and Versace. If she had her way she’d know everything you were thinking, and finds nostalgia in a past where “people [were] more connected”. So when the sunlight hit just right we took her back to where she once belonged – to the pure sands of Bulgaria and the people who made it home.

My last dream … Can’t remember, I take many naps. My nickname is … Kremi. Not many people know that … I know four languages: English, Spanish, French and Bulgarian, and understand Russian and Italian. My friends would describe me as a … Very honest person. I keep fit by … I was born this way naturally. My favourite childhood story was … I have way too many. I’m nostalgic for … The past, where people would be more connected to each other, enjoy the moment and not take a picture or a video of every single thing to post on social media. The words I live by are … Everything is possible.  My wardrobe is … Very organised.

First impressions are … Not always what you thought. The most exciting place right now is … With my family or on a job somewhere around the world. The song I know every word to is … The Wheels on the Bus, because I sing it with my son every day. My idols are … My husband. The superpower I’d most love to have … Read minds. I’m most looking forward to … Having more kids and working more. I want to create … A beautiful and healthy family. My imagination is … A secret. The most magical place on Earth is … Obviously Bulgaria. I’m superstitious of … Way too many things. I never thought I would … Never say never. My favourite food is … Sushi at Nobu. The future looks … Exciting and amazing.
