About The Designer
Inspired by unfamiliar places, objects, and experiences, Maya Charbin has always been driven to discover the unknown. Born in Lebanon and based in Toronto, her design aesthetic is reflective of a global influence.
Maya developed her unique signature “Versatile silhouettes” influenced by Japanese Designers flawlessly blended with multinational spirits.
Maya is a storyteller and her garments “speak” to the audience, bringing to light a charming, diaphanous woman, with a strong sense of creativity.
She is continuously following her inspiration, which takes her to most unexpected places, creating fashion stories with abnormality flowing from them, broadcasting the message of strong morals and forgotten values in an innovative, post-contemporary way.
Previously finding a creative outlet in her employment as a make-up artist with MAC Cosmetics, Charbin’s relentless passion for design drove the mother of two to return to school and explore her childhood dream.
Graduating from Esmod International Fashion University Group, Charbin was the recipient of three awards. Her graduation collection was selected for display in Beirut’s largest department store.
Charbin made her Toronto debut during Fashion Art Toronto in April 2015. She has showcased her collections at Torino Fashion Week in 2016 and 2017 and has also put up her own private show.
