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.
