I had the pleasure to interview Marcelle and to present her beautiful collections in my boutique.
So I don't want you to wait any longer, here it is the interview with Marcelle.

When & why did you start chokoMODE?
I launched chokoMODE in December of 2013 and for various reasons. Some of
the reasons include the fact I previously had been exposed to designing
while growing up and also I felt the need of a clothing line that focused
on the professional women who dress with elegance and style.
chokoMODE is a unique clothing line offering individual collections of
rich quality fabric for today’s professional woman whether at work or at
play. Our designs are classy, sophisticated, and elegant yet boast a
figure-flattering tailored fit.
I was exposed to designing and sewing while growing up as a child, in
Cameroon, Africa however, I obtained a degree in Healthcare from the
University of Houston and currently, I am taking fashion courses at FIT in
New York.

How would you describe your style?
chokoMODE is a fashionable collection, comprised of versatile business
attire and after work evening wear ranging from business and leisure
suits, alternating jackets, pants, and skirts, as well as colorful and
comfortable cocktail dresses.
I like the entire collection however, the lace jumpsuit and the double
breasted asymmetrical jacket compliments the body and makes the woman
stand out

Would you like to design collections for an important brand?
Yes I would love to design for Elie Saab because his collection of
cocktail wears adds beauty to the woman’s body.
My designs are sold online. In the future, I would like to expand my sale
to different boutiques and malls.

Hope you enjoyed the interview and if you want to shop your favorite piece from a very stylish brand come and visit me at Maiden-Art boutique in Angera or have a look to chokoMODE online store

With love,
