For a beautiful 2014 start,
I had the pleasure of virtually meeting the www.al-sahafa.us Editor-in-chief Ms. Fatina Salaheddine on Twitter, who planned my interview with Rosanna Akhavan. It was a very light and transparent conversation and it felt like I’ve known Rosanna forever!
Its quite detailed and put together in a very lovely way. Read on..
Thank you Fatina and Rosanna for such a lovely interview!
Christina Aguilera always looks gorgeous, but she exceptionally looked fantastic in the promo of The Voice wearing an I by Aiisha hand-beaded cocktail dress!
There are many powerful voices out there, but Xtina is one that has captured millions of hearts around the world. The Voice returned with its new season on the 23rd of September 2013 on NBC. Judges include Christina Aguilera, Adam Levine, Gee Lo Green and Blake Shelton.
A big thanks for Christina Aguilera and Antonio Esteban.

While I was giving my second collection from my recently launched ready-to-wear line I by Aiisha final finishing touches, my first collection is still harvesting its success in Hollywood!
On the 28th of August, singer and actress Keri Hilson looked gorgeous to perfection with her darker hair, long braids, beautiful gold accessories wearing a long black Dita gown from my I by Aiisha Fall/Winter 2013 collection. Keri kept it simple yet sophisticated.
Keri was beautifully styled by Monica Rose as she arrived to the premiere for the third installment of the science fiction thriller “Riddick”, in which she plays “Shirah” a prisoner opposite action star Vin Diesel.
To tell you more about the Dita dress, this is one of the most special pieces to my heart as it appeals to every woman. You can wear it open back with a long slit with the button loops acting as decorative elements, or you can close them for a more conservative look. The best thing about it is that its so simple and calls for statement accessories. I have made it in beautiful colors like cobalt blue, red, black and off white. I have to say that the Dita dress is the signature dress from I by Aiisha.
Thank you Keri Hilson, Monica Rose and Style PR for a beautiful outcome.
I finally launched my first ever high-end ready-to-wear line I by Aiisha and little did I know it would take the Middle East by storm! Women are hungry for pieces with class and quality for everyday and I’m giving it to them. After realeasing our I by Aiisha video campaign for our collection titled “Mirror” with celebrities Joelle Mardinian, Asma Lmnawar, Mohamad Abuobeid and Arjan Bajwa, it was time to give Dubai a real taste of my new line.
The story of this line is about women’s individuality and evolution. With simplistic lines, statement colours and structured fit, this line suits women with differing needs, backgrounds and tastes. Specifically, the ‘Mirror’ collection reveals the 2 sides of every story and multitude of characters that each person can embody.
Our vision for the brand came to life with support from the Infiniti Centre, part of the Arabian Automobiles Co. A powerful, luxurious and classy brand, these same elements are incorporated within our ‘Mirror’ collection. Months of hard work and planning was facilitated with the cutting edge technology of the Blackberry Z10. Wella Koleston crowned the models and Asma Lmnawar’s hair with trendy hair styles reflected in clean lines of perfection. Revlon was a trendsetter painting the models nails with black French manicure on nude base.
Revlon also touched the models faces and Asma Lmnawar’s with brushes of beauty marking fierce cat eyes on structured nude faces. 5 star catering DISH and Voss water from Norway treated invitees with a refined taste and refreshing water.
Select invitees received their invitations with a special treat that made their hearts beat so fact! A beautiful La Prairie gift bag!
Finally, I wish to thank my partners, press & media, family & friends for their amazing support! I couldn’t have done it without you.
AIISHA RAMADAN to represent Middle East’s Prêt-à-Porter at Paris fashion phenomenon on the Seine
Global fashion show organizer and model Jessica Minh Anh has picked me as her favourite UAE’s celebrity designer to represent Prêt-à-Porter sector from the Middle East at the highly anticipated J Spring Fashion Show on the famous River Seine in Paris on 30 May 2013. This marks the second collaboration between Jessica and Aiisha after the incredible J Winter Fashion show on Costa Atlantica took place in Dubai via Frost Boutique.
This exclusive VIP and press event is a part of Jessica’s series of unique catwalks at the most extraordinary venues worldwide following the grand success on London Tower Bridge, PETRONAS Twin Towers’ Skybridge, and Costa Atlantica in Dubai.
My latest ready-to-wear collection will be showcased on a 90 metre floating catwalk on the Seine’s giant glass boat Le Jean Bruel with the natural backdrop being architectural wonders such as the Eiffel Tower, Notre Dame and the Louvre.
“I am not only a fan of Aiisha Ramadan’s clean cut and unique designs, which greatly accentuate a woman’s body, but also impressed with the way she operates her business. Being a young talent, she has definitely taken advantage of the latest technology and social media to share her vision to the fashion world.” said Jessica Minh Anh, who is featured in ELLE Hong Kong this month wearing my AIISHA Couture sculpture signature dress. I by Aiisha collection will command its presence on the Seine in Paris with creative dimensions, strong colours, and impeccable tastes.
Parisian can also take a glance at some of the most unique pieces from the catwalk at the mini exhibition between 1 and 15 June 2013 at Renaissance Paris Arc de Triomphe, the Official Hotel Partner of J Spring Fashion Show.
Thank you Jessica, Frost and Paris for this dream to come true!
In line with my tradition of innovation and unique collaborations, ‘I by Aiisha’ was launched with a video campaign featuring a host of celebrities including beauty expert and TV presenter Joelle Mardinian, singer Asmaa Lmnawar, TV Presenter Mohamad Abu Obeid, Bollywood actor Arjan Bajwa and myself. This video featured these celebrities unique and personal opinions of how to define style.
I love the fact that Mohamad Abuobeid spoke about how its not an obstacle for a woman wearing a veil to look stylish. Asmaa spoke about how essential it is for her style to reflect her identity as a Moroccan singer. Joelle gave tips on how to change an entire look by changing her accessories and shoes. Arjan stated that he’s a classic guy who has an eye for details.
I can’t thank these beautiful people enough for their support and for voicing out their opinions on fashion and style through my I by Aiisha video campaign. Everyone of us has a protagonist and antagonist inside. Without good there is no bad and vice versa. The art is to embrace both and learn how to harmonize the opposites within oneself. With this collection I wanted to reveal the simpler side of me. One that gave me balance.
I will post a video with the collection from the fashion show very soon. Stay tuned!
First and foremost, I wish to thank every single magazine, blog, television and website that has supported our “I by Aiisha” collection that we have launched on the 15th of April. To see them all, please visit our Facebook Fanpage or Twitter.
Below is some of the TV coverage that our collection has received.

April 15th will mark the launch of my latest high-end Ready-to-Wear collection “I by Aiisha” under the title of “Mirror”. The launch will be in a form of a fashion show and a video campaign featuring celebrities from the Middle East, North Africa and Bollywood, who will attend the fashion show.
On that day, my guests and I will be surrounded by everything beautiful!
This is a very special line to my heart and I’ll tell you its story after the fashion show. For now, I want to thank my partners, Infiniti (Arabian Automobiles), Blackberry, Wella, Revlon, La Prairie, Dish catering and VOSS water for their support.
