Mykela Marshall has successfully grown her business into one of the fastest growing Greek paraphernalia companies
Mykela Marshall is a native of a small town known as Monroeville, AL. In 2009, she earned her Bachelors of Science in Chemical Engineering from Auburn University. She also became a member of Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority, Incorporated while at Auburn University in Spring 2005.
After graduating she made a very successful career by working as a process engineer, sales engineer, and an operations manager during the 8 years she worked in Corporate America. In fact, at the last company she worked for she was the first African American female promoted to Operations Manger to manage an all male production crew of a multi-million dollar process in that facility. Her work ethic and leadership ability was recognized by the senior level executives and thus she has received several presidential bonuses and awards.
After attending her sorority’s regional conference in 2014, she realized that the majority of the Greek paraphernalia sold by vendors was the same. She always knew she had a love for fashion, so she came up with the idea to bring a boutique concept to the market. She wanted it to be comprised of fashionable products that change with each season. In October 2014, she started Fashionably Greek. Her collections are comprised of great quality products that are vintage inspired. All of the designs are chic, timeless and versatile for many occasions.
As a military spouse, she faced the hard decision of having to find a new job or focusing on building Fashionably Greek when her husband received orders to relocate. She made the decision to take a leap of faith and started working full time with Fashionably Greek. She has successfully grown her business into one of the fastest growing Greek paraphernalia companies. Her 1908 sweatshirt design has been seen on The View worn by non-other than the Oh So pretty Sunny Hostin. Other celebs such as Yvette Brown Nicole, Ebony K. Williams, Roland Martin, and Shamari Devoe have purchased products from Fashionably Greek.
She is a member of Delta Theta Omega chapter of Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority, Inc. in Mobile, Alabama. She prides herself in giving back to the community through volunteerism and charitable donations. She is married to Jamon Marshall who serves in the United States Army. They have a beautiful baby girl named London Belle.
