Digital fashion, beauty and travel blogger, girl-boss, plus Canal Walk Brand Hero, Aqeelah Harron Ally says, “Never before has there been a better and more liberating time to be unapologetically exactly who you are.”
We could not agree more!
Modishly modest and magnificently modern, Aqeelah is unapologetic about who she is, what she likes to wear, setting her own style and embracing every opportunity that comes her way wholeheartedly.
This inspirational Capetonian has been sharing about beauty, fashion, business and dressing modestly as a married Muslim woman since 2010. Young 27-year-old Aqeelah started Fashion Breed as a simple fashion blog, a platform for the young fashion and makeup enthusiast to document her interests, activities and travels. The blog has held up a mirror to her life over the past seven years, covering everything from her graduation to her fabulous OOTD, her marriage and many personal and professional achievements.
Today, the blog and accompanying social media accounts have become a full-time business for Aqeelah, who routinely shares relevant and thought-provoking content with her audience of nearly 50,000 fabulous followers and counting.
In 2016, Aqeelah introduced her followers to her YouTube channel where she also uploads fashion and beauty tutorials. She also developed the popular YouTube series titled ‘Cover, Girl’, which offers styling tips and advice for women of faith wanting to dress modestly yet remain fashionable and on-trend.
Aqeelah is fashion-forward and well-travelled, with a Media, Film, Writing and Drama degree from the University of Cape Town and a makeup qualification from the Smudge Makeup Academy. She is also an entrepreneur. Following her passion, she designed her own false eyelash range Lashes by Fashion Breed.
With a skill set that covers fashion, beauty and travel advice to lifestyle writing, editing, photography and makeup, as well as TV and radio appearances, it is no wonder that she has become so popular with her followers as well as like-minded brands who appreciate her ‘real girl’ perspective.
