Anileve – Evelina Papantoniou
Anileve is actually an anagram of my real name, Evelina. I have built a career in the fashion industry as a jewellery desginer and a model for almost twenty years. After winning the tittle of Miss Greece 2001-2002 and 1st runner up Miss Universe 2001-2002, I got the opportunity to travel around the world, discover amazing places, embrace different cultures, connect with creative people… and return back home fullfilled and inspired! In my life I was always driven by my passion for creation. After studying Interior Design & Graphic Arts at Vakalo school of art and design (1999-2001), I decided it was time to take a step further and follow a true passion of mine ‘jewellery design’. Therefore, I attended courses in jewellery design (craftsmanship & workshop) at Mpenaki museum (2011) & Sotheby’s institute London (2012). Since 2014, I started my brand Anileve and finally my dream came true! My brand Anilevel Fine Jewellery has been featured in several magazines such as the British Vogue, in the MAD Museum in New York, as well as in “A Jewel Made in Greece” that takes place in Athens every year.
