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. 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. 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. This blog is about Aiisha's personal fashion journey and her own perspective experiencing everything beautiful.

Zenaday Coleman in AIISHA RAMADAN

As I was revamping my blog, I realized that I have either missed blogging on the below or that I have mistakenly deleted it.
Either way, I’m glad.

As I was still establishing myself in the world of dressing celebrities a few years back, Zendaya Coleman was a young starlet with a lot of aspiration, class and talent to share with the world. As I went through her photos with her entourage prepping her for the NAACP awards and the after party, wearing AIISHA RAMADAN for both events, I thought to myself “WOW! The sky is the limit for this young girl”. And so it happened, this beautiful lady became an inspiration for millions.

Amazing tastes of Thailand

I was invited by the Tourism Authority of Thailand in Dubai to experience the amazing tastes of Thailand a couple of days back at the Dusit Thani hotel in Dubai, where I had an incredible experience tasting one of the best cuisines in this world. Thai food is certainly one that awakens my sensations with its spices and sweet fruits. As I’m on the verge of giving up from the heat, comes the incredible mix of steamed rice with the best tropical fruits. I’m not one for sweet and sour but this definitely hit the high notes while it cooled down my flaming tongue.

The guests also experienced some Thai massage as well as live music. It was colorful and so alive, exactly what Thailand is all about!

Aiisha Ramadan campaign – #PhilipsSoundofDifference

I’m honored to take part of the Sound of Difference campaign by Philips Arabia. This campaign is a way to officially start my long life dream of fighting hunger around the world.

Yes I do realize that I’m just one person and not fully dedicated to this cause, but my intentions will give me the means to reach my goal in changing thousands and eventually millions of lives, one life at a time.

This is a competition between myself for Fighting Hunger (or Feeding the poor) and between 2 other incredible guys who have their own incredible causes, Ahmed Adly supporting orphans and Elias El Indari Prostrate Cancer.

The more you watch and share my video, the more votes that counts for me and all the money from this campaign raised by Philips Arabia would then be paid to a charity organization of my choice, or simply given to the end sources, like families in refugee camps around the world.

I count on your help and pray that you’ll assist me in fighting hunger where we have enough resources for 7 billion people, yet 800 million of whom suffer from hunger.

Thank you

Following the above post, my campaign did indeed generate the largest number of votes and I’m eternally grateful for the immense support that I’ve received. I can’t wait to draw smiles on people’s faces, one individual at a time. Thank you, thank you, thank you!

The re-launch of Aiisha Ramadan

I presented the relaunch of my brand – AIISHA RAMADAN – in the shortest fashion show I’ve ever had. Nothing was by mistake. Nothing was a coincidence. I knew exactly the feedback I wanted to receive, and it was ‘Remark-able’.

After nearly 9 years of working in the industry, my fans, clients and the world knew me for couture; intricate gowns that would be presented in sets of several dozens, worn by celebrities from Hollywood to here, my home, the Middle East.  My love for couture and the fantasies it surrounds me with, is what got me into the fashion world after all!



However, my belief was, and still is, that my true essence is in the ready-to-wear business – but I needed some commercial guidance. This is when I met Asil Attar and the Est2014 (Established 2014) team, and together we set out on a journey to restructure and manage my brand, and to mentor me as a person, a designer and an individual.

The process started in December 2013 and it was so emotional, cleansing my soul and mind. It was an incredible journey in search of Aiisha Ramadan. I had to literally choose between 

1. Being a couture designer spending thousands on extravagant shows and one off pieces to impress my audience or 

2. Being a brand that will leave a legacy for decades to come with its wearable and affordable lines.

I chose what my essence stood for without letting go of my couture fantasies.


So for my first official ready-to-wear collection, we focused on quality rather than quantity by displaying signature silhouettes that will be the core of the Aiisha Ramadan brand moving forward. It’s fair to say that every piece I displayed was made with pure love, passion, dedication and a vision of where this brand will be in the near future.

The inspiration for my A/W ‘15 collection is ‘City Lights’. As I drive by, or fly above, the magical ceremony created by all the lights embracing the city at night, I’m mesmerized by the geometry, the colours and the reflections on the buildings. There’s magic created when all of these elements unite.. they play on my imagination, creating elegant, effortless and refined lines.

For my A/W’15 collection I partnered with Dhamani jewelry. Their incredible sets of diamonds represent the brightest lights in a dark sky. With each look from day wear to couture, each ring, each necklace and earrings, adds a touch of glamour and timeless beauty that can’t be ignored.


The last several months have been extremely busy for me, I had to raise another human being for the first time – my beautiful daughter.  Although it happens all the time with others, it was a first for me.  It was an exhausting yet incredible, life changing experience. The thought that every decision I now take, will shape my baby’s life is an immense responsibility.  My journey of discovery was a lot more challenging when coupled with being new to motherhood. But in the end we all pulled through and I’m extremely proud to say this is my favourite collection to date.

AIISHA RAMADAN is a brand with a global vision that is dedicated to offering its clients a variety to their wardrobe that stands the test of time – simple, refined, elegant, effortless and timeless. It’s about time the Middle East region exports some real ready-to-wear fashion and I never fail to be a pioneer among the few Middle East designers endorsing this domain.

Thank you for your incredible souls that have supported me throughout the way and I look forward to sharing with you my new journey as it unfolds.

Apart from the fact that I love Felicity, I’ve always wondered which personality from the Desperate Housewives characters my girlfriends related to. For me, it was definitely Lynette Scavo.

Thank you Felicity Huffman for wearing Aiisha and Linda Medvene for the styling.

Raya Abirached opens and closes AGT wearing Aiisha

I truly love this woman as I relate to her. She’s classy, elegant, and is constantly evolving. I’m very proud to be associated with Raya Abirached when it comes to her fashion choices or any other choices for that matter.

Raya opened the live episodes of Arabs Got Talent 2015 wearing a black ready-to-wear Aiisha Ramadan bodycon and closed the show at the finale wearing an indigo blue Aiisha couture draped silk gown embroidered using Swarovski crystals. I love how she wears my designs perfectly. Tight enough to highlight her beautiful figure and conservative enough to keep it elegant.

BodySmart – Follow up

As promised in a previous post, here’s an update half way through my Hypoxi and LPG courses by BodySmart body-shaping center in Dubai.

First of all, I have enjoyed every minute I’ve spent at BodySmart. I’m constantly accompanied by amazing ladies helping me out and encouraging me through each session. In a very friendly and happy environment with personalised services, I was sure I’ll receive great results.

However, I need to point out that if the main reason hindering greater weight loss results were is the fact that the enhancements of my eating habits are very minor (i.e: I avoided eating at very late hours and definitely committed to the no carbs within 4 hours from undergoing the Hypoxi treatment), other than that, not much has changed (a couple of days back I had a full porcini pizza for dinner!)

Below is how your plate should look like – in my case Lunch:


Photo by www.Fitnesslatte.com


TIME FRAME: 2.5 weeks (average 3 sessions per week)

WEIGHT LOST: 1.7 KG (I lost fats and gained muscles, perfect recipe but that doesn’t show on the scale)

MEASUREMENTS: I lost a total of 14cm lost (Example: Waist: 3cm, Hips: 3cm, Thigh: 2cm)

BODY LPG: Cellulite is starting to feel less stubborn

FACE LPG: That’s my favorite part as its almost like a facial that ignites the blood circulation in my face and gives it a fresh look

I have to say that I’m impressed with the results and looking forward to even better results by the end of our course.
