Over the next few weeks leading up to NFTE NY Metro’s Youth Entrepreneurship Challenge (YEC) Semi-Finals happening June 4th, we will be profiling every student participating in YEC. Stay Tuned. Today, we are profiling Arlien L, CEO of Urban Turban.
My name is Arlien, and I’m the CEO and founder of Urban Turban. I am a junior from a competitive school, the Business of Sports School (BOSS). As a fashionable designer ad model, I’ve always loved fashion – I want to become a trendsetter. In creating Urban Turban, I was inspired by the 1920’s trends of unique headwear called a turban. My goal is to bring back this headwear with a more fashionable and creative look. Since early 2013, I’ve been creating and designing my own unique turbans. I have been selling my product to different fashionistas throughout New York City using social media.
