In 2016, Emir starred in the upcoming docuseries/TV show called “Rich Kids of Instagram.” He wanted to be a part of the show to change people’s preconceptions about coming from an affluent background.

Bmojis will constantly be updated based on the events and travels happening in Emir’s life to create a truly interactive experience for his followers.
EMIR REPRESENTS THE EPITOME OF LUXURY.
Having travelled the world and enjoying only its finest things, Emir has created his own category of luxury lifestyle by chronicling his over-the-top jet-setting escapades using the popular hashtag #Bahadiring. In the last year, Bahadiring has organically grown from a hashtag chronicling his posh escapades on Instagram to a luxury fashion and cosmetics brand.
Emir has been praised for his style in his various international social circles and is always asked if he’d want to design his own line. Emir has decided to bring his definitive style to life with his new menswear collection, Bahadiring. He wanted to create a product that men feel comfortable in while still looking sharp and elegant. He wanted to bring back the classic men’s silhouette of the triangular shoulder, fitted waste, and elongated leg. Emir achieves this through using the highest quality fabrics available and top-of-the-line tailoring and craftsmanship.
In addition to clothing, Emir has ventured out into skincare. Realizing the need for quality cosmetics in the men’s sector, he has decided to create a line that caters to the needs of people who simply don’t have time to get an hour-long facial but desire the same results. The first products will be collagen masks and eyepatches that can deliver healthy, hydrated skin in 15 minutes
