About
British-born designer Melissa Diamantidi grew up in Athens, Greece and returned to England to pursue degrees both in Fine Art and Business Law before setting her mind on Fashion Design. Moving between the world of academia and creativity, Melissa Diamantidi graduated from Parsons, New York, in 2008 and in the same year moved to London to work under the guidance of Roland Mouret. In 2011, Melissa Diamantidi launched her first collection from her London-based studio, and has already been seen in publications such as Vogue and Marie Claire. Aspiring to appeal to the new, modern woman who embodies individuality with her progressive fashion awareness, Melissa Diamantidi's collections consist of refined tailoring and unique drapery, challenging conventional methods of finishing. Constructive concepts develop into reflective movements, juxtaposing the aesthetics of modern femininity and understated details with sharp style lines and clean-cut silhouettes. In honour of supporting British manufacturers, all Melissa Diamantidi pieces are produced in London.
