[Interview]: House of Mera Founder Plans Pop-Up Shop In Downtown L.A

Los Angeles, CA–The last few weeks have been pretty busy for House of Mera founder Tymera Finley. The 24-year-old is hosting her second pop-up shop tomorrow and wants to ensure the event is a success.

Fashion has always been a source of inspiration for Tymera who started designing clothes when she was in high school. In 2016, she decided to channel her creative talents into creating her own fashion line.

House of Mera is envisioned to be a one stop shop for all your fashion needs. The pieces the brand offers range from active gear to sleepwear. House of Mera also provides stylish pieces for the grown and sophisticated woman.

Tymera is excited about this particular pop-up shop because she will be unveiling her mens collection. Within all her excitement, there is a lot of tough, behind the scenes work to make her visions become reality.

“It’s hard work. The toughest part for me right now is support. Trying to start a business from the ground up without the support of your family or those around you is really, really hard,” Tymera detailed.

When asked about some of her fashion icons, Tymera named Rihanna and Victoria Beckham among those whose style she continues to check for.

“First and foremost I have to give it to Rihanna. Her style is amazing. Victoria Beckham, her style is classy, it’s a bit edgy. She always gives a different feel to it but it always looks elegant.”

Fashion continues to be a driving force in Tymera’s life because she finds freedom through clothing. In her world of fashion, no one can dictate what she wears, or how she wears it.

“I have so much freedom to do what I want to do when it comes to fashion. What makes House of Mera so unique, is that we put no restrictions on what we can do. We do active wear, we do ready to go wear, we just got into hand bags and accessories and we are going off into children’s clothing. It’s not just a store for women.”

Tymera describes her style as classy and a little over the top at times. People who know her best, would describe her as caring and selfless. In her free-time, you can find Tymera giving back to her community through clothes and food give aways, especially to the homeless population.

The location of the shop is 732 S. Los Angeles Street from 1:00 p.m. until 6:00 p.m.

“It’s my way of paving the way for my family, and those that are around me. It’s my way of giving my people a better experience and outlook on life. I’m at the point in my life where I’ve seen and experienced so much pain and struggle within my family and certain relationships, that I just want to be that calming light for everyone. So I push no matter what  weapons form trying to prevent me from prospering. I’ve managed to get my clothing in multiple fashion shows as well as my very own fashion show.”
