The word “Aliya” is a word that loosely translates into “a young woman whose life is not handed to her, who works hard, and who doesn’t settle in any area of her life.”

Aliya is founded upon the belief that women can be driven and motivated in their lives and careers, while still being fashionable and expressing their identities through the clothes and accessories they wear. The Aliya online boutique is the product of years of hard work, experience, and the recognition of the need for an affordable, fashionable line for hard-working, trendy women.


A word from Brooke Ashley Rafidi, owner & founder of Aliya



 I have always felt like there was a shortage of unique, fashionable, affordable clothing and accessories for women. It always seemed to me that affordable prices and great quality were mutually exclusive. While at Tulane University, my alma mater, I worked as a Saints Cheerleader, which afforded me a real insight into what the modern woman is looking for in fashion. The desire to combine my business acumen with my personal interest in clothing led to the creation of Aliya, an online boutique with original, fashionable pieces that can be worn many different ways, with many different styles, season after season. If I was not the owner, I would be a customer. Much love to all the Aliya girls out there, and happy shopping!
