I am the designer of a small fashion company founded in 2012, which has its production made in Romania. I have in fashion design at University of Art and Design Cluj-Napoca(UAD), Romania in 2010. After a brief internship at Jolidon (the company awarded with winning both the Grand Jury Prize and the Specialized Public at Salon International de la Lingerie Paris many times along the years), I have decided that it is time to start my own company and brand. In octobre 2015 I presented my SS2016 collection on the runways of Paris Fashion Week, where my brand is spotted by fashion critics and fashion editorialists.Also in octobre 2015 I make with Trend Prive Magazine and The Secret Code Of Fasion a photo editorial for the spring issue. The women who enjoy the designs of Maia Ratiu are independent with a strong style of sophistication. I strongly believe that women nowadays search for dresses that match theirs personalities as also dresses made to be pieces of art, with unique cuts and bold textures, so that's what I do.
