About Me

Valerie Mayen was a top contender on Project Runway, Season 8. Her vintage, yet cutting edge style and passion for fashion made Valerie an audience favorite. Alas, she was sent packing back to Cleveland, Ohio, but her designer career didn't end there. Though most of us may only know the Mayen name from Project Runway, she has been impacting the fashion world since 2009 with Yellowcake Shop. Thanks to a hard-working sewing machine and devoted fans, Yellowcake designs are now "must-have' staples in any fashion-forward closet.
