Valerie Mayen is a champion of the underdog. She named her clothing line Yellowcake because “yellow cake, the actual dessert, is underrated. It’s the classic combination of rich chocolate frosting with sweet yellow cake. it’s the epitome of classic, and the champion of sweets. Sometimes overlooked, but never disappointing”!
That’s her idea behind Yellowcake. Sweet design with classic style. Eye candy with design substance.
Her designs are heavily influenced by the marriage of mod vintage looks with contemporary cutting edge style.
Valerie’s wants to consistently produce beautiful, high quality work while maintaining Cleveland-based manufacturing, utilizing local sewers, undertaking student apprentices to pass skills on and helping others with a portion of the profits of her work. Since inception, Yellowcake has always committed to donate 5% of the business profits to charity.
Hailing from Corpos Christie with Guatamalian roots her studies took her from Philadelphia to Abeline to Rome and them Cleveland with stints in LA. Valerie epitomizes her line in this detailed coat.
