The aim of this project is to study how social and cultural everyday life issues can be translated within fashion context to present a fresh point of view, in this case by bringing new attention to tradition.

About the Designer


Melissanthi is based in London, United Kingdom. She studied at London College of Fashion and graduated in 2013. Her collections are produced in United Kingdom.

Melissanthi Spei is a Greek designer based in London. Leaving her country triggered a very powerful reasoning behind her work. Her heritage in combination with her creativity inspires her to create contemporary and sculptural garments. Part of her identity as a designer is to use industrial materials for something historical and old through the exploration of traditional arts and crafts and their projection to contemporary aesthetics.
There is always a poetic and dramatic interpretation to her creations with her latest collection entitled after Rainer Maria Rilke’s quote from ‘Duino Elegies’ and previously ‘Death is A Dialogue’ by Emily Dickinson.
