When I was born a friend of my mother’s had read a book where the fictional character
in the story had my name and everyone called her MAYDI.  That’s where my nickname came from.
I’m a self-taught fashion designer. Since I was a child my passion was fashion, I had my own sewing machine and drew and made dresses for my dolls. I studied advertising in Buenos Aires. In 2001 I did an apprenticeship in Fashion Design at the London College of Fashion.
I worked more than twelve years in the fashion industry in Paris, doing marketing, communication and development of international markets for brands like Golden Goose deluxe brand, Sonia Rykiel, Hermès, Isabel Marant, Robert Dodd Showroom, PLC Consulting Paris for the Fédération Française de la Couture; Designers Apartment howroom”, among others.
