"The main idea of my design is to combine glamour, style and femininity, without losing freedom. I want people to feel the confidence that comfort gives and have fun with it."
Maya is the brainchild of third generation Argentine designer Carolina Dinardi. Her life-long fascination with design began at the age of five when her grandfather, a humble but highly-skilled Italian shoe designer, demonstrated that he could transform the silhouette of any object Carolina chose into a sketch of a beautiful shoe. Carolina was thrilled and in her young mind her grandfather's creativity and skill were the most wonderful and magical things she had ever seen. From that moment on, Carolina carried a little sketch pad around and tried to show her grandfather that she too could tap into her mind's eye and transform the ordinary into something beautiful.
Carolina's mother is also a fashion designer and most of Carolina's summer vacations were spent in the design studio learning sewing techniques. By age fifteen Carolina was sewing heart and bow shaped pillows out of scrap fabric found in her mother's workshop. It started out as a hobby but friends and family were charmed by Carolina's creations and started asking her to make matching pillows for their sofas.
