Instagram Star Alii Muhammed lost some weight and gained a career
Alii Muhammed, one of the world’s most influential men’s fashion blogger, wasn’t always this suave, confidence personality that he is today. Reason – low self-esteem due to weight issues! However, his resilience and hard work helped him lose the ‘extra baggage’ and get in shape while gaining back his confidence and a successful career in the process. Today, he is a hotshot social media influencer in possession of a little black book filled with the names of his celebrity friends, some of which are international designers.
True style of Alii Muhammed
Ali describes his personal style as sophisticated, gentlemanly! Hear from the horse’s mouth, “You know what, my style really depends on my mood – ranging from being chill and not dressing up, I mean I love sweats and sneakers. I would say my style is mostly towards suit though, I am inspired by the sophisticated, gentlemen style, in terms of what I’ll see my favorite role models wearing and I will try and incorporate it into my look.” Some of his favorite designers are Zegna, Tom Ford and Burberry for their remarkable creations.
The funny story
Dubai-based Alii was a student of Bachelor’s Degree in Marketing in University when he went through a weight loss journey, wherein he didn’t just lose 20kgs in just four months but also increased his confidence and self-esteem. He began to wear clothes, which not only fitted him to the T but also made him realize his good looks. Around this time, Alii began to ask his friends to click pictures of him to post on his Instagram handle, aliimuhd. Looking at the marvelous pictures, some of his friends suggested him to try out modeling. Alii asked his parent’s help to pay for getting a professional photo shoot done regarding the same. Although his parents paid for a professional shoot, Alii never got lucky with any of the modeling agencies. But lady luck was soon going to smile at him!
Things started to look up
Nevertheless, Alii posted those professional photos onto his Instagram account, which helped him in growing his social media presence. In no time, he started receiving collaboration offers from clients, some of whom wanted him to be a VIP guest for events. That is when Alii made up his mind to opt for social media as a full-time career.
Dubai – The fashion destination
Dubai has emerged as a regional leader in terms of fashion and lifestyle in the past few years and Alii agrees with that. Being based there, he is in a better position to compare the scene in Dubai to that in cities like Paris, New York, Milan and London. About that, he has this to say, “I think over the last 2 years Dubai has really become a fashion destination with so many amazing designers who are truly talented and it’s a shame that they are not given more attention!”
After this, Alii wants to grow his presence on diverse social media apps, such as TikTok. Eventually, he wants to be known as a “well-known creator.”
