Founded in 2016, Madame Blue is an online independent magazine focused on fashion, travel, and culture.
From fashion and travel to culture and entrepreneurship, there is always something to learn from others, and by sharing their stories, we aim to inspire creativity, connection, and curiosity within our audience.
Meet the Founder
Valeria fell in love with writing at a young age. After competing in journalism throughout high school, she created Madame Blue as an outlet for interviews and articles she could publish while studying at Texas A&M University.
Since then, Madame Blue has welcomed young writers looking to build their portfolios, publish their work, and gain experience on a remote team.
Madame Blue is a nickname my parents gave me as a child after the Styx song ‘Suite Madame Blue.’ Today, Madame Blue represents go-getters with high expectations for themselves and a drive to meet those expectations, regardless of obstacles.”Valeria Ramos, Founder and Editor
“Writing for Madame Blue has been so rewarding. I love having creative freedom and building a substantial portfolio. Our diverse team provides an upbeat and welcoming atmosphere that I truly appreciate.”
“Madame Blue has provided me with a creative outlet to share my love of fashion and given me the opportunity to connect with others through writing.”
“Writing for Madame Blue gave me the opportunity to expand my writing portfolio and apply for jobs in the editorial industry. I also had the chance to interview amazing fashion industry professionals.”
“From writing monthly articles and interviewing fashion and beauty professionals to connecting with other writers, Madame Blue helped improve my writing skills and grow my career. I have since written for CR Fashion Book, Essence, and Hasbro.
“Writing for Madame Blue helped refine my writing skills. I work as a social media marketer, so writing and editing content is essential. Plus, it was a fantastic, creative outlet from my nine-to-five. I got to write about topics that were important to me!”
“I love the freedom we have to explore topics at Madame Blue. Being from India, some of the articles I’ve written would be considered controversial, so it’s great to have a safe space where I can express myself freely and spark conversations.”
“Madame Blue allows me to write about topics I’m passionate about with more freedom than I would have at a newspaper. I love the spirit of Madame Blue—while the topics we write about can be lighthearted, our stories raise points, and educate.”
“I love the creative control and flexibility writers are given to develop ideas and meet monthly deadlines. My writing has improved so much since joining the team!”
“Writing for Madame Blue has helped build my portfolio and landed me internship interviews with networks like CNN and Discovery.”
“Since joining Madame Blue, my writing has improved significantly. My favorite part of being on the Madame Blue team is that I’m constantly inspired and supported by such unique, creative women from around the world.”
