AIISHA RAMADAN is a Lebanese fashion designer based in the United Arab Emirates, who launched her own clothing brand in 2006.
She has won a number of prestigious awards such as Young Designer of the Year by Swarovski, named one of 30 Most Awesome Women in the Arab World in 2009 by Arabian Woman Magazine and won The Gr8! Women Achiever Awards in 2011. Global brands from different segments including beauty and technology have trusted and partnered with the designer on internationally recognized projects, making her one of the most influential woman from the Middle East. October 2015, Japanese cosmetic giant Shiseido named Aiisha Ramadan as its Regional Ambassador for the Middle East.
Celebrities such as Charlize Theron, Jennifer Lopez, Nicole Scherzinger, Christina Aguilera and Paris Hilton have adopted the label, which has gained international popularity for its elegant, yet sultry look.
As an influential woman, emphasis is on individuality, freedom of expression, self-acceptance and celebration, all portrayed in the usage of high-quality materials, clean lines with layered details – simple, refined, elegant, effortless and timeless.
Ramadan’s past collections have focused more on couture pieces; however, Ready-to-Wear is now the main direction for the AIISHA RAMADAN brand. Ramadan felt that it was important to create collections that allowed her to reach a wider audience and showcase her more contemporary signature.
In 2013, Ramadan was scouted by global fashion industry expert Asil Attar, whose business Est2014 (Established 2014) is designed to scout the premier emerging fashion designers from the Middle East and beyond, with a vision to empower the new generation of designers, fostering their potential and launching them as regional and International future heritage labels.
