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.
In 2013, Ramadan was scouted by global fashion industry expert Asil Attar, whose business Est2014 (Establish 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.
