About the Designer

MELISSANTHI_SPEI's picture

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.
