Auvere: Aisha McShaw The Glamorous Life


Aisha McShaw has always had a thing for beauty and glamour. As a child growing up in Mount Vernon, New York, Aisha watched old Hollywood movies and fantasized about wearing the nipped waist suits, dramatic ball gowns, long satin opera gloves, and gleaming jewelry donned by movie stars such as Bette Davis, Rita Hayworth and Grace Kelly. Eager to create her own personal style, a teenaged Aisha cut up and refashioned her clothes with sewing skills learned in middle school — much to her mother’s chagrin.

By the time she left college, however, Aisha had decided on a career path that was quite different from her natural passion for clothing design and styling. She became a banker. In fact, Aisha spent more than 10 years in the field, earning one promotion after another. Yet, as much as she excelled at personal finance, Aisha loved getting dressed for the job just a wee bit more.

As many of us know, childhood passions are often left behind as we prepare for our passage into adulthood. But if they are strong enough, these passions resurface later, and often when we least expect it. While recuperating from a car accident, Aisha began to rethink her career path. In that quiet time, Aisha reflected on her childhood love for fashion. Many decisions and acts of faith later, Aisha has found herself running her own ultra-glam fashion brand, Aisha McShaw.

Aisha’s story is a testament to the staying power of our childhood dreams and the respect that we should give to the things that make us happy and about which we are passionate. Without further ado, meet Aisha McShaw.
