Founder and CEO of JEM Fab Fashions, Model, Self Love Advocate
Meet the woman behind the fashion – if you haven’t read up on her story and how she arrived to where she now is you can take a peek now and get some deep insight into her amazing journey! Please read on!
Ylondra Marrero is the founder of JEM Fab Fashions and the inspiration behind this amazing concept of celebrating and inspiring beauty in all walks of life. She is a seasoned runway fashion model, photographer, philanthropist who’s passion and beauty run soul deep. She is a native of New York City who fought hard as a single mother to rise above her life challenges and find success in her career and in life.
Her goal is to inspire women to embrace and celebrate their beauty through her fashion line and to realize her dream of creating a non-profit organization whose purpose is to help our youth overcome their insecurities and discover self-love, inner confidence and value in who they are!
Who Is Ylondra
Who is Ylondra Marrero? For many years I asked myself that very same question, searching for answers in all the wrong places, wanting acceptance and validation from all the wrong people. Looking outside of myself for what was already within me all along. This quest to find and understand myself through the eyes of others placed me in a very dark place in my life where I lost my identity and fell into a deeper sense of loss and disorientation.
I inherited my love for fashion from my maternal grandmother in my early childhood years. She lovingly designed and created hand sewn dresses that first she designed and later allowed me to. We would sneak away to the fabric store to buy material and I would describe my designs and she would bring them to life.

Being able to take part in JEM Fab fashion show was such an exciting and empowering experience from start to finish. Working with Ylondra, I never once felt out of place. She made the photo shoot and fashion event such a fun time for all of us. Being someone who loves fashion and clothes it was great to see such amazing quality in the items she provided. Clothes that are for ALL shapes and sizes. Clothes that make you feel beautiful and comfortable in your own skin. All in all it was an outstanding experience. – Alana Anderson
My experience with Ylondra has been a wonderful delight and I was so honored to work for such an amazing soul. She thrives and keeps going for what she wants and cherishes life as it is everyday because it truly is a blessing. Ylondra is at all an amazing human being and definitely an experience I’ll remember for a long time. The gala was beautiful and screamed elegance, also don’t miss out on the clothing you won’t be disappointed… the quality is phenomenal and a comfortable fit. I promise you can find one thing that suits your interest no matter your interest in taste. – Yalanda Phomsyha
You are beautiful inside and out! Also very inspiring! – Jen Fin
One of my dreams manifested itself in the form a fashion show filled with light, blessings, and beauty. Ylondra, from the moment we first made contact I could see your dream and the beauty of it realizing sparkled in your eye. You took a chance on me, I didn’t have much work to showcase other than what I’d done on myself and I couldn’t be more grateful and feel anymore blessed than I do right now, and that’s because you believed in my dream as much as you believed in your own. Tears came down my eyes that night for many reasons, I will never forget the doors you opened for me and the blessings you rained down on my life, all from this night. Until next year my love! – Inae’e Alexander
I admire your confidence. – Lisa Smith-Hannon
“I love this lady Ylondra Marrero and her designs! Went to her gala and fashion show last night and loved what I saw. I will definitely attend her shopping spree on April 6th (assuming it isn’t sold out)!! She designs for every woman, no matter her age, size, race, color, or flavor. And with her non profit she is helping other women go places, too. I think you will be seeing a lot more of her. And I will definitely be buying!! – Christina Wojtena
