Best Local Fashion Designer 

Valerie Mayen

Valerie Mayen blasted off like a rocket in 2010 when she landed her first appearance on Bravo’s fashion game of thrones, Project Runway. The then-28-year-old Cleveland designer behind her own Yellowcake label — a funky and colorful line of clothing that would look cool on chic space invaders — lasted nine episodes before getting booted. But Mayen didn’t use her national platform to beat a path out of town. Instead, she’s constantly worked to make Cleveland more fashionable. Mayen opened her Yellowcake Shop in the Gordon Square Arts District in 2011. A year later, she held her first Hullabaloo, a fashion show for charity. And this year, she returned to Bravo; Cleveland couldn’t be more proud.
