Meet Our Founder & Boss Babe, Mariela Polanco
“By doing what you love, you inspire and awaken the hearts of others.” - Satsuki Shibuya
Marfemme was founded in 2019, out of my bedroom in New York. In May 2020, I decided to chase my dreams and launch my very own business. Growing up, I watched my mother own her own business, which was incredibly inspirational for me. She embodied the soul of my brand, which is built on the basis of female bosses. Women who chase their dreams, never give up; all while wearing clothing that empowers them, and makes them feel beautiful.
I spent the last 13 years working in the fashion world and fully understanding the customers. I did this by working for a variety of different brands, upper and lower scale. After the passing of my mother, who was my role model in all aspects of life, I went on a venture to create a handbag line to commemorate her. When I reached my mid-twenties, I shifted my focus to blogging because I loved the opportunity to share a little piece of me with the world. My experience with blogging has opened so many doors for me, and I have had the ability to meet hundreds of inspirational people. In addition to this, I began teaching the tips and tricks to blogging, while using my book “My Blogging Diary: All the secrets to becoming a blogger.” Each of these beautiful souls left a mark on me, and I’ve made some life long friends. I hope my brand touches you all, and empowers you to be the best version of yourself!
