Hi, I’m Maya!
Living in Michigan but with my heart still in Los Angeles, I’ve always had an intuitive sense for aesthetics that I wanted to share with others. To back up my passions, I went to school to learn the science behind the artistic decisions I was already making. I now have a BA in Graphic Design from Azusa Pacific University and an AA in Merchandise Product Development from the Fashion Institute of Design and Merchandising where I earned a full ride and was nominated as valedictorian.
I have held jobs designing clothing sold in Nordstrom and Neiman Marcus, modeling for catalogues and designing marketing for boutique hotels around the world. But no matter what route I took, I still had a longing to contribute my knowledge to a broader audience. Hence MayaLaMode was born. I’ve created this space for the love of all things beautiful and hope to inspire and indulge the creative in you as well.
