15 Questions with Fashion Entrepreneur, Alli Echelman

Posted by Burgundy Fox on

Name: Alli Echelman

Nicknames: Al

Current city & state: Brooklyn, NY

Business name & year founded: Calin New York, 2017

I started my business to: Empower women to express their evolving style

3 words I use to describe my/Calin NYC's style:  Thoughtful, eclectic, sophisticated

I know it's weird but: I love eating breakfast for dinner

My favorite thing about being an entrepreneur is: Being my own boss and meeting
so many other amazing founders!

My last big learning lesson was: That not everyone is going to agree with your
decisions but you have to ultimately do what’s right for you. I’m a major people pleaser,
but at the end of the day, I’m the one who ends up in the life that I build for myself.

The best advice I've ever received: Always trust your gut

My biggest guilty pleasure is: Watching Mamma Mia—it’s my favorite feel good movie

My current mantra: “Keep your eyes on the stars and your feet on the ground”-Teddy
Roosevelt

If I had to eat one food for the rest of my life it'd be: I could eat pizza all day
everyday

Bucket list destination or activity: I’m dying to go to Iceland

My top 3 tips for an aspiring designer and entrepreneur:

  1. It’s inevitable that you’re going to encounter setbacks, but that doesn’t mean
    you’ve failed--it just means you have to pivot
  2. Celebrate the small wins. It’s so easy to get caught up with what’s next without
    acknowledging everything you’ve already accomplished
  3. Overthinking things can be the death of a great idea, especially if it’s out of the
    box. Sometimes you just have to take a leap and go for it
