Mayda's love for fashion started at a very young age when she designed her own clothes and tie dyed her own fabrics. She moved to New York where she studied fashion and fabric design soon launching her career as a Professional designer in the most competitive fashion Metropolis of the world.

Her talent was immediately recognized and she soon had her own collection at Henri Bendel, Barneys, Bloomingdale's, Harod's of London and many other department stores in the U.S. and abroad including Italy where she worked to develop her ready-to-wear knit collection which was produced in Prato and distributed throughout Europe.

A true lover of her roots, Mayda returned to Miami in 1998 joining the fashion world with fresh ideas and integrating herself into the community. She chose Coral Gables as the ideal setting for her MAYDA CISNEROS Couture Collection boutique, catering to women of all walks of life who love fashion. Mayda feels that the most important aspect of her collection is the understanding of each woman on a one-to-one basis. She draws inspiration from the collaboration with her client's needs and dreams. Most of her clients include business women and celebrities alike.

Mayda's involvement in the community focuses on being a liaison between various charities and the community. Mayda is also an active member of the international Women's Forum, whose objective is "the advancement of women's leadership across careers, cultures and continents by connecting the world's most preeminent women of significant and diverse achievement" as well as to "provide a network of support and exert influence" for women's causes.

In her own business environment Mayda has consistently provided personal coaching and on-the-job learning opportunities to women who are under graduates and graduates of Miami Fashion Schools. In addition, Mayda has been a patron of women with physical disabilities giving them not only equal job opportunities, but special support.
