Amina Muaddi Biography – Amina Muaddi Wiki
Amina Muaddi is a Jordanian-Romanian footwear designer and entrepreneur. She is the founder of her eponymous label, Amina Muaddi, a popular line of shoes, bags and jewellery which is “designed in Paris, produced in Italy, with an international heart.” The designer launched her first shoe brand, Oscar Tiye, when she was 26.
At age 16, Amina moved to Italy to start high school and then went on to study at the European Institute of Design, which led to her early career in fashion editorial and celebrity styling.
At age 26, Muaddi started her first brand, Oscar Tiye, and worked there for around six years. In August 2018, she launched her eponymous label, Amina Muaddi, which went onto become the industry’s most-searched shoe brand of late 2019, according to global fashion search engine Lyst.
Amina Muaddi Parents
Amina was born in Romania to a Jordanian father and a Romanian mother. Her family moved to Amman, Jordan, shortly after she was born. Her parents separated when she was six and she returned to Romania with her mother.
“I wasn’t aware of what my mom did to help me as a child and it took me years to understand. The opportunities I have today are mostly because she took me out of Jordan. Not because it’s not a good place to live, but because my dad is very conservative and probably would not have liked for me to have a career,” the Jordanian-Romanian shoe designer told Vogue Arabia.
The designer was inspired to explore the fashion world by her mother, who was her “main style icon.” She told Vogue: “When we were living in Jordan and Romania, I didn’t have a lot of fashion exposure, so my main style icon was my mom. She was always elegant and passionate about style. I would watch her do her makeup, and like all little girls, I loved dressing up in her clothes. I would try on her shoes even when I could barely walk in them. She always took care of herself and took such care in the way she dressed, so she was my introduction to this world and led to my passions.”
Her stepfather died in June 2020. The footwear designer took to Instagram to pay tribute to her stepfather. She wrote at the time: “You made the most noble choice: to be the father of a child that is not yours. I prayed to God that He’d take my tears and use them as fuel to give you more life. I will miss you forever daddy. My heart is shattered. Rest in Love.”
Amina Muaddi ASAP Rocky
In April 2022, Jordanian-Romanian footwear designer Amina Muaddi was at the center of the rapper A$AP Rocky and Rihanna cheating rumors. On April 15, 2022, the designer issued a statement denying any involvement with Rocky.
She said in the statement: “I’ve always believed that an unfounded lie spread on social media doesn’t deserve any response or clarification, especially one that is so vile. I initially assumed that this fake gossip – fabricated with such malicious intent – would not be taken seriously. However in the last 24h I’ve been reminded that we live in a society that is so quick to speak on topics regardless of factual basis and that nothing is off limits. Not even during what should be one of the most beautiful and celebrated times in one’s life. Therefore I have to speak up as this is not only directed towards me but it is related to people I have a great amount of respect and affection for. While Rih is continuing to live her serene, best dressed pregnancy life and I go back to my business – I wish everyone a beautiful Easter weekend!”
On April 14, 2022, Rihanna and rapper A$AP Rocky were hit with cheating rumors when writer Louis Pisano claimed on Twitter that the couple had split because he allegedly cheated with Muaddi. But a source close to the couple said they’re still going strong.
