Aisha Leitner is the visionary mum behind one of the best things to happen to D-I-Y (and professional!) parties in Dubai, Party Camel.
You know all those really gorgeous party accents you see on Pinterest? The giant balloons, streamers, glitter, confetti, pineapples, flamingoes, etc. that have 'source order from the US 30 days in advance' written all over them? Well, she's sourced all those hottest party deco trends herself and filled up a gorgeous little office and warehouse space in Al Quoz with them, so that you can buy them off the shelf in Spinneys, Waitrose, Virgin Megastore or online for immediate delivery.
After spending 15 years in Dubai, much of that at the Shangri-La, downtown. Her family have just moved out to the 'burbs (Lakes) where they are enjoying the quiet breeze outside open windows and riding bicycles to the shared tennis courts.
Aisha is mum to Aliyah (6) and Kian (5) - two beautiful and immaculately behaved children. She is married to a German expatriate. Before launching the party camel Aisha's professional background was in HR and social work.
