Anna Michaelidou

A fashion and textiles designer with a focus on textiles development, design and sustainability. The pieces I design take inspiration from my country of origin, Cyprus. This connection between my heritage and personal life is a fundamental principle of my work. Sustainability is also critical to me and a central part of why I incorporate old apparel into my new designs. Giving a second life to textiles is both important in regard to preserving sentimental meaning and also for the environmental impact it has.

From my inspirations, I have created timeless pieces and garments which evolve with the owner and

tell a story, shaped by each individual.
