Opened by Tony Salamé in 1989, Aïshti has grown from a single high-end clothing store into a globally recognized chain that carries renowned luxury brands. With various branches throughout Lebanon, Aïshti brought together under one roof some of the most prestigious fashions labels in the world, including Prada, Miu Miu, Yves Saint-Laurent, Dolce & Gabbana, Dior, Sergio Rossi, Roberto Cavalli, Marc Jacobs, Marni, Burberry, Fendi, Chloé and many more.

The "Aïshti Seaside" store in Jal el Dib, a few minutes north of Beirut, also features furniture and home accessories from high-end European brands like Minotti and Misura Emme.

Aïshti also ownes and operates several monobrand boutiques, most notably Cartier, Gucci, Celine, Zegna and Diesel in Lebanon.

"Aïzone", the more casual side of Aïshti, exists as a separate entity and carries some of the hippest international brands including Camper, True Religion, 7 for All Mankind, Armani Jeans and various other trendy Los Angeles brands.

The company has also branched out into parallel industries, with a spa and hair salon operating inside the Aïshti store in Downtown Beirut, and a glamorous lifestyle publication, "Aïshti Magazine", focusing on fashion, entertainment and design.

The restaurants, "People", with two separate locations, and "Aïshti Café", also operate under the Aïshti umbrella.
