Miranda Konstantinidou Show - Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Spring/Summer 2015BERLIN, Aug 1, 2014/ — From the press notes:

Miranda Konstantinidou became internationally known via her “KONPLOTT” jewellery brand, with which she has set countless trends.

She started 25 years ago in womenswear when she spent ten seasons designing fashion collections for Trevira and Messe Frankfurt which were shown in Frankfurt and Hong Kong.

Konstantinidou was born in Thessaloniki, later studying fashion illustration and design in Germany and Italy. In the mid 1990s she opened her first single-brand stores, of which there are now about 60 worldwide.

For about the last 15 years she has run her own manufactory in Cebu, a centre of handcraftsmanship in the Philippines, where she also lives. She is constantly developing new production techniques by combining traditional and modern assembly methods and experimenting with unusual combinations of materials.

In running a company with more than 1300 employees worldwide, she is committed to working with people trained in her own firm. As a businesswoman, she relies strongly upon solidarity and a company culture that is almost entirely shaped by women.
