Ayesha Depala launched her eponymous in 2006 in Dubai. The local brand is famous for its Ready-to-wear, Couture and Bridal lines, suitable for every modern woman with an old-fashioned soul.


The Ayesha Depala brand is worn by numerous star-studded stars from around the world, like Bollywood star Sonam Kapoor, Lebanese singer Elissa,and so much more. In 2012, Depala was named one of the 60 Most Influential Indians in the UAE, and was appointed to be featured in the 2016 edition of Indian Super 100- a tribute to business professionals and corporates across the Middle East and Africa.


Ayesha Depala’s SS18 collection is finally here, it is a unique range that captures the duality of today’s modern woman. Featuring 32-pieces, the new ready-to-wear collection presents the mixture of the new and the familiar, the feminine and the masculine, the delicate and the strong. Urban and full of elegance and sophistication, the collection includes signatures like the cold shoulder and cascading ruffles, all presented in a sporty approach.


We also saw casual pieces like cargo trousers, drop-shouldered jackets and heavily draped dresses. Plus, a bomber jacket decorated with 3D floral applique and bows, an asymmetrical maxi-dress constructed from laser-cut crepe, and athleisure jogger pants crafted from black silk matched with a delicate ruffle blouse.


Today, the Dubai-based designer has proved herself across the Middle-Eastern fashion scene and has future plans on expanding the brand into Asia, Europe and the USA.
