Ready to wear. The new faces of fashion design
Konstantina Mittas design aesthetic/philosophy
Mittas draws inspiration from music and film; her work is strong and structured, quite architectural, with an emphasis on shape. And she provides “a million versions of black.”

Best ‘n’ fresh
What sets this brand apart from the rest is an alternative approach to a sexy way of dressing, with a distinctive sense of design and feel in the cuts, shapes and fabrics. Konstantina Mittas is definitely one to keep an eye out for.

Konstantina’s clothes are a beautiful combination of luxury fabrics, strong shapes and immaculate construction - think the Belgian 6 or Ann Demeulemeester.

BEST new threads. Konstantina Mittas
Artistic and architectural, this young Sydney-based designer’s works have us completely fashionated. When we first saw the sculptural shapes of Konstantina Mittas, we were struck by the way the fabric seems to billow and stand at attention. Still, despite their intricacy, Mittas’ pieces are both wearable and attention grabbing, sophisticated with an edge.

Bold shapes, big statement
For the bold at heart Konstantina Mittas has again come up trumps with her spring/summer collection. This is a girl who knows what she likes.

With a locale that resembles Manhattan’s Meatpacking district, Sydney designer Konstantina Mittas’ off-the-radar Chippendale studio is the perfect exhibition space for her libertine wares. As for design pedigree? “I can’t boast graduating from a famous design school or an internship with McQueen” muses Mittas before confirming her point of difference is a self diagnosed “attention to detail disorder.”

Launched in four of LA’s coolest stores alongside impressive stable mates like Vivienne Westwood, Marc Jacobs and Chloe. A toasty warm reception ensued an invitation to be one of three designers at LA Fashion Week’s Gen Art Show 2005. Gen Art invites those they consider the best new talents to take part. The invitation was extended to Konstantina Mittas, the first non-American to date, and she has subsequently been asked to submit for the Designer of the year award.
