About Me

You need this off the shoulder playsuit in your closet! Paired with a sunhat and choker, it makes the perfect warm weather outfit. LOVE this look so much!

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.
