I was the girl who brought hidden outfit changes to school, so my mother wouldn’t notice. I constantly raided closets of fashionable women I knew, all while studying fashion magazines any chance I could get.
Decades later, I am pursuing my original passion as Founder of Elevated Style By Aliya (ESBA).
My colorful 15 year modeling career, innate passion, and B.A. Marketing degree have all helped me develop a unique skill set.
Over the years in New York City, I have gained on the job knowledge, learning behind the scenes from industry pros about all things style and fashion.
During my modeling career, I’ve worked with agencies such as CESD, Bella, The Jan Alpert Agency, Model Service Agency, and Soza Model Management.
I’ve modeled for clothing and accessory catalogs, booked fit modeling jobs, and commercial print ads … modeling for companies such as Match.com, Pepsi, Essence magazine, David’s Bridal, Modern Bride, and the Whole Foods Better Body campaign.
