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!

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. Her most recent partnership is with Dhamani, one of the most successful businesses in the international jewelery industry, as well as supporting the leading make up and beauty brand Shiseido in launching their A/W’15 product range.
The AIISHA RAMADAN label is the epitome of modern design. The beautiful crafted garments speak to the feminine woman across the world. Celebrities such as Jennifer Lopez, Nicole Scherzinger, Christina Aguilera, Charlize Theron and Paris Hilton have adopted the label, which has gained international popularity for its elegant, yet sultry look.
Behind each AIISHA RAMADAN collection are the fruits of self-reflection, that resulted in bridging Ramadan’s passion for extravagant couture with her own personal style, spontaneous attitude and consistent love of life.
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.
This blog is about Aiisha's personal fashion journey and her own perspective experiencing everything beautiful.
I was contacted by Jon Jensen, producer of Inside the Middle East on CNN, three times before the interview actually took place. The first phone call included extensive questions about me and my business. I later learned that those questions were asked to a list of 20-something other designers in the UAE.
