Marylynda Mac Donald is the designer and innovator behind the CHU CHU LOO fashion collection. As an artisan, she truly understands how color and shape can transform people. She gives close personal attention to every element of her collection, using only the finest quality Italian fabrics and proudly adding “Made in the USA” to her label by manufacturing her clothing in the United States. CHU CHU LOO pieces are unique and quietly bold, with meticulous consideration to every detail, enhancing women’s natural elegance with the intention to inspire the artist within.
Marylynda was influenced at a very young age by the personal style of her mother, Ann Mac Donald who was extremely elegant and stylish with every aspect of her life. She was exposed to a very high level of design in her childhood homes and her parents’ modern taste of furniture. As a young adult she lived and traveled throughout Europe attending the Royal College of the Arts in London.
Marylynda was hired by the developer Jorge Perez, The Related Group in 2001 in Miami for her first of many commercial projects as an artisan. She went on to complete many commercial and residential projects using her artistic talent; painting murals, faux finishes, abstract paintings and Venetian Stucco which she received a prestigious craftsmanship award in 2009.
Marylynda later realized that after working as a successful artisan for 16 years, she wanted to pursue a career in the fashion industry and began designing her clothing collection in 2014. Her transition from being an artisan in the commercial world to the fashion world was a natural move for her. Coming from a real understanding of color and scale and living in a female body, she innately knew what she wanted to create. She has designed a sophisticated classic chic brand for women of all ages, for women on the go. Easy to care for, her collection is something that would make a woman feel “comfortable and exquisite” both at the same time, from the casual business mornings to the night in or out of town every day, season after season.
Marylynda continues to design Spring/Summer Collections for All-Year-Round following her passion and travels around the world which inspires her love of fashion, culture and art to create elegant and exciting collection for her exclusive global clientele.
