Take A Break With Kristy


Hello there, and welcome back to "Take A Break," where you'll meet a different member of the ELOQUII team as they take an afternoon break. This month, we're catching up with Kristy Chan, our Associate Technical Designer, as she sneaks out of the office to play Pokémon Go. Because as they say, you gotta catch 'em all. What have you been working on today? 

I just came from a fitting this morning with our fit model. We were fitting coats that’ll be coming out this fall, and they look super cute!

What do you do at ELOQUII, and how long have you been with the team? 

I am an Associate Technical Designer, and I’ve been with ELOQUII for a year and a half. As a technical designer I make sure the fit of the clothes are great for our customer. By the way, to everyone reading: it’s extremely helpful to read your feedback on the website to see how the fit is and if it can be improved. Keep it up!

What's the best time to take an afternoon break?

Around 3 pm because that’s about the time my brain needs a little pick-me-up.

What's your go-to activity for taking a break? 

Definitely Pokémon Go right now! There’s actually a Poké Stop at the roof of our office building that has an amazing view of the New York City skyline. It’s a lovely place to be away from my desk. There’s also a battle gym across the street that I owned for about a minute (serious bragging rights, I know).


What's your favorite pump-up jam to get you through a busy afternoon? 

Cha Cha by D.R.A.M. and still after so many months the Life of Pablo album because I’m psyched to see Kanye in concert this September!

What's your favorite afternoon snack? 

A grape lollipop. There seems to be an endless supply in the candy jar.

What do you want to cross off your to-do list before the end of the day?

I really want to finish the fit comments I have for a strapless wide leg jumpsuit that’s coming out in the fall. It’s absolutely gorgeous.

What's your favorite thing about working at ELOQUII? 

My coworkers! Especially the ones that bring their dogs to work… so maybe it’s just the dogs. The squad of pups in the office is always up to something whether it’s running around, barking at all delivery men or women, or begging for our lunch. They’re always up to something that makes everyone laugh, and they bring a fun, happy, and positive energy to the office.

And lastly, what's your favorite style tip you've learned while working at ELOQUII?

Having your hair on-point really pulls an outfit together. Have you seen the ELOQUII lookbooks!? Their hair!!
