We had the good fortune of connecting with Joel Acosta and we’ve shared our conversation below.

Hi Joel, why did you decide to pursue a creative path?
Retail is very extensive; from the big brands to the smallest ones, there is a world in between; chasing this dream has been one of my goals since I was a kid and when I started working for fashion designer brands and today living what I call ELI Boutique.

Alright, so for those in our community who might not be familiar with your business, can you tell us more?
ELI is born because of my vision of fashion and show women around that they can be pretty, brave and whatever they want, just by looking like they want to be.

ELI is my first baby, and I care of her the way I like to be treated myself.

Let’s say your best friend was visiting the area and you wanted to show them the best time ever. Where would you take them? Give us a little itinerary – say it was a week long trip, where would you eat, drink, visit, hang out, etc.
First of all I’ll took the, to Wynwood, Las Olas Beach Boulevard, and then enjoy of the museums and restaurants over the shores

Shoutout is all about shouting out others who you feel deserve additional recognition and exposure. Who would you like to shoutout?
The main acknowledgment would be to my mother, the name of the store is in memory of her.
