CEO, Creations Youd
With a degree in Professional Accounting from the HEC and an innate talent for designing costume jewelry and high-end accessories, Youdline Marcellus has combined her two passions in her company, Creations Youd, established on December 9, 2012.
A woman of ambition and conviction, she decided to follow her heart by entering into a jewelry design school (École de joaillerie de Montréal), where she perfected her skills in basic jewelry creation techniques. She also attended workshops on costume jewelry design alongside professionals Chris & Alix.
How can her style be defined..?
Youdline’s creations cannot be categorized into any particular style. She is an eclectic designer who has her own unique signature that highlights the image of the trendy woman and the modern man who wear her creations.
Despite its young years, Creations Youd has already been noticed on the international scene by being invited to participate in the DPA Pre-Award Gifting Suite of the 2014 Emmy Awards. Youdline had the opportunity to meet and offer her designs to celebrities such as Anne Betancourt, Angela Basset, Blair Underwood, Shawn Toub of Homeland, RJ Mitte of Breaking Bad and Jimmy Jean-Louis. Shortly thereafter, Creations Youd realized her dream of participating in the prestigious 2014 American Music Awards gifting suite at the Nokia Theater, in Los Angeles, CA.
She has also participated important local events, such as The Bridal Show, the Black Expo Design, the MTL Caribbean Fashion Week and the Black Fashion Week Montreal.
Creations Youd has also been involved for over two years in humanitarian causes, particularly with the Fondation Voix Angélique (FOVA) which helps underprivileged children in Haiti and Africa.
Creations Youd, preciously yours!
