Women who inspire in fashion and life: Michelle Obama

Fashion designers are often asked who inspires them. For Amirun Khanom, inspiring women are the inspiration! The brand seeks to empower through sophisticated pieces that transcend seasons and offers everlasting quality, with a twist of the ‘here and now’, so who better to be our muses than women who are equally elegant and exciting?

Michelle Obama

One of our most prolific inspirations is former U.S first lady, Michelle Obama. She tackled eight years under the world’s watch with admirable grace and ease, never ceasing to surprise us with her fabulous dresses or her humour. A professional woman and activist in her own right, Michelle Obama was the epitome of class and elegance in fitted pencil skirts and flowing gowns.

What struck us most about her style was her ability to keep things formal while adding the fun details that got her into the pages of Vogue so many times. A lover of colour and texture (just like us!), she made sure that classic silhouettes glowed in bold florals, were layered with ladylike lace or caught the eye in vibrant shades. Always testing new designers and championing emerging labels, the former FLOTUS never disappointed.


AmirunKhanom offers the same kind of flexibility for women wanting to steal her note-worthy style. Our white sleeveless floral dress with a mix of painterly flowers and a subtle texture ticks the chic box with its fitted silhouette, while adding a romantic, feminine finish. A blouse in the same fabric features a neat contrast collar that’s both cute and controlled enough for business. Check out our full collection for more tips and tricks for first lady dressing…
