Miami, FL

Maxine Viktor began her career in 2008 as an event coordinator and producer in the TV/Film industry. For three years she produced featured films, music videos, TV shows, and commercials; working alongside notable talent such as musicians Pitbulls and Jadakiss, actress Jackee Harry, and Congressman Alan Grayson. In 2008 Viktor assisted in the fashion production of Bullets-4-Peace and Frederick's of Hollywood fashion show(s) at the Eden Roc, Miami, for the 30th birthday of Washington Redskin's wide receiver Santana Moss.

In 2011 Viktor changed her career course, dedicating herself full time to special event planning and public relations. Her most notable event, Metropolitan International Fashion Week Miami, is a large-scale annual fashion event that takes place every spring in Miami, Florida, and is known for being the first to introduce established foreign designers to the U.S. market.

When not working on her fashion show she can be found supporting various charitable causes. Viktor is a patron of Chapman Partnership, a nonprofit organization that helps the homeless. She created the "Women's Business Makeover" to prepare Chapman Partnership's female residents for job interviews by providing them with business attire and complete professional makeovers, boosting the residents' self-esteem and allowing them to look their best.

Viktor's additional community service includes serving on the 2013 planning committee for Singles for Switchboard and sponsoring South Florida After School All Stars, Feeding South Florida, The Circle of Friends South Florida, and Make A Wish South Florida; and fundraising for Circuit 11 judges Celeste Muir, Rodney Smith, and David Young.

On April 30, 2016, her dedication to the community was officially recognized by Ms. World International Organization, who presented Viktor an award for her "Outstanding Contributions to the Community".
