Holiday Hip List 2018: Aisha RTW

#HipNJ’s Lisa Marie Latino recently met with Aisha, owner of Aisha RTW. The Aisha brand is based in NJ and consists of hand made, ready to wear dresses, coats, capes, scarves and handbags. The items are all made with fine Italian materials offering superior quality. Aisha explains that she completed her master’s in Italy and grew to love the Italian fabrics, which is why that’s all she uses for now.  

“We want women to put on the dresses and feel amazing”, Aisha says.

These products are made for women who want to be comfortable, yet luxurious and fashionable. They are for women who want simplicity with a pop of pizazz. The versatility of the clothing appeals to just about any type of woman there is. 

Aisha told Lisa, “When you feel amazing, you look amazing. Its not just about the dress, its about how you feel in the dress.” 

This resonated with me because I’ve always been told, “When you look amazing, you feel amazing”, but I like the way Aisha puts it much better.  How you feel is more important than how you look. Anyone can throw on a beautiful dress and look extremely beautiful on the outside while feeling uncomfortable and self conscious on the inside.  

Every woman should have at least one Aisha RTW item in their closet if they want to be comfortable, versatile and fashionable! For more information, visit AishaRTW.com.
