At age 22, Nadia moved to Harlem, New York.[8] She started her blog in 2010.[7] Her blogging career began as something she did in her spare time and now she is a full-time fashion blogger.

Her first modeling shoot was with Seventeen magazine for a curvy section.[11] Shortly after she won American Apparel's model search.[12] After modeling in an Addition Elle lingerie campaign she was approached about designing.[13] She created a Fall 2015 capsule collection, which was shown at New York Fashion Week.[11] Her design featured a 14-piece collection for women sized 12-24 and described as “minimalistic”, “military” and “comfortable".[11][13] Her line for Love & Legend was sold exclusively at Lord & Taylor.[13] She was named the face of boohoo.com and took a partnership where she was also able to release her own collection which did really well.[14]

In 2016 Aboulhosn shot for the cover of Women's Running Magazine's April issue.[15] Her message encourages hard-work and diversity, as well as reinventing the standards of the fashion industry.
