CLE Style – Fresh and Hot

Famed Project Runaway Alum, fashion designer and owner of Yellowcake, Valerie Mayen, is back with a new collection ready to debut to you on Friday, November 8th, 2013.

Valerie invited me to her shop in Gordon Square ( I LOVE having such fashionable neighbors) for a preview of the new collection and it is amazing.


Check out her shop at 65th and Detroit for tons of goodies today!

This year’s show, Hullabaloo 2013 is inspired by Valerie’s dear friend and mentor, Lisa, who lost her battle with cancer last fall. The collection will be shown in 7 chapters, all of which represent the love Lisa and her husband experienced for each other – aptly named Companion.

Not only does Lisa serve as a muse for this collection, but all bar proceeds will be donated to Lisa’s foundation, PMP Cancer Research Foundation. So not only can you check out Valerie’s latest collection, shop the trends, and party with Cleveland’s best dressed – but you can also help others and raise money for this wonderful organization.
