About the designer
Marcelle Gakam proudly hails from Cameroon, Central Africa before transplanting to the United States. Driven by her passion for fashion, she sets up chokoMODE headquarters in Houston, Texas. Now residing in New York, the fashion capital of the world, and taking courses at FIT, Marcelle is determined to make her original chokoMODE brand of style and apparel a worldwide standard of the fashion industry.
According to Marcelle, the name "Chokomode" was inspired by her grandmother's name Choko, but decided to add "MODE" to emphasize the unique spirit, culture and heritage of strong professional women across the globe. Thus the tagline, "dressing the professional woman with elegance" was born.
Influenced by her French-African roots, she was compelled to build a brand from the ground up that spoke to sophisticated women from various backgrounds, ethnicities and walks of life.
