On the 18th of November, Nicole Scherzinger sizzled in a hand-beaded halter neck figure hugging AIISHA couture gown in dark charcoal at the X-Factor UK! She looked like a statue of perfection.. stunning and breath-taking.
This dress will be available this December at Frost Boutique on Al Wasl Square, Dubai - UAE, and requires approximately 2 months for completion when ordered. Nicole certainly sets the standard up high as she constantly steels the show with her fierce sense of fashion at the X Factor.
Thank you Nicole Scherzinger and Laury Smith for the beautiful work!
Coming back to the scene with all strength, Melanie B, former Spice Girls member also known as Scary Spice, spoke about her future plans to Kate Waterhouse. From being a judge on The X Factor Australia to America’s Got Talent, Melanie was inspired to go back to the studio and record her first single after 8 years “For once in my life”.
During the interview, Melanie wore an I by Aiisha ready-to-wear indigo blue dress from our “Mirror” collection and looked radiant! Read the entire interview here: http://www.theage.com.au/lifestyle/celebrity/mel-b-ready-to-return-to-oz-20131102-2wsz9.html
Thank you Melanie for choosing to wear I by Aiisha!
I was thrilled to see one of my favorite Grey’s Anatomy stars, the gorgeous Camilla Luddington, wearing 9 “I by Aiisha” and “AIISHA” gowns in a beautiful editorial in Regard Magazine. I’ll let you see and judge for yourselves.
I mean isn’t she gorgeous! Thank you Camilla Luddington, Regard Magazine and Style PR for the beautiful coverage.
Last June, I was invited to join a team of selected press from around the world to the introduction of Lolita Lempicka’s latest fragrance Elle L’Aime, which finally launches in the Middle East this week. In brief, this perfume sums up the general inspiration of Lolita Lempicka, a woman in love and its definitely one of my favorites ever.
I was welcomed at my hotel with a beautiful Lolilta Lempicka gift and macaroons, of which I had a lot during this trip.. I mean how could you resist when fragrance was in the air and food! The same evening, we headed to the gala dinner at La Maison Blanche on Avenue Montaigne to experience Elle L’Aime for the first time. A fragrance that smells like the best floral bouquet you’ve ever had, so different from other floral scents. After all, it took them about 3 years to get it done.
To understand the brand Lolita Lempicka, you have to understand the woman behind it, how she got her name keeping her original one a mystery for as long as she could. By visiting the Pinacotheque de Paris Museum, we got to see Tamara Lempicka’s art, which I fell in love with. Lolita got her name from the character behind the controversial book and paired it with Tamara’s last name, Lempicka. It was interesting to find out that Lolita’s birth name remained a mystery for a very long time.
At the Lolita Lempicka headquarters, I met Lolita herself and it was amazing to see myself in her as she’s a very sensual woman living in her own world of dreams yet so down to Earth.
Here’s my interview with her:
Where do you find your passion? In so many places – watching Parisian girls walking in the street, the cinema from 30’s to the 80’s, lounging around in my garden, surrounded by flowers, trees and animals, travelling in France, Italy and NYC and visiting museums.
Can perfume change your mood? Perfume has a positive impact; it makes me feel beautiful and ultra feminine.
How do you decide when to launch a new product? Are you bound by the season or is it completely random? Seasons have to be taken in consideration but my desires are driving the creation.
What message are you communicating through your latest perfume? A message of love, passion and sensuality.
Why have you been so away from fashion design and how do you spend your day? Fashion is only on “stand by” period: I recently created a sunglasses and glasses collection already being sold in France.
You’re known to be a woman with vices, like most women, what are your worst contradictions? One day – I will climb the Himalayas with a back pack for a trek and another, I will organize a XVIII century theme party with enthusiastic friends.
The next day we headed to the factory in Chartres where all the Lolita Lempicka perfumes are born. It reminded me of how couture is made, so detailed, and every part of it is under control. This was a lovely experience and certainly very informative.
Thank you Lolita Lempicka and the team behind her!
Its no surprise that I love dressing Raya Abirached and she loves to wear AIISHA. It was also beautiful to see her in one of my cocktail numbers from the I by Aiisha “Mirror” collection we launch showcased last April. Raya accessorized the look with Azza Fahmi jewelry, which I thought was very beautiful and gave the look a fierce effect.
This lady looks beautiful in anything she wears simply because of her character and pure beauty. She’s got a skin complexion that works with a lot of colors and textures and ultimately makes it more fun to dress her.
I love you Raya!
