JOANNA LAURA CONSTANTINE
Joanna Laura Constantine is the creative force behind her eponymous luxury accessories brand. Her fascination with fashion, jewelry and accessories drove her to the Parsons School of Design, where she obtained a degree in fashion design. After graduation, she held a series of internships at a number of renowned design studios. Her time working in fashion houses such as Donna Karan NY, Lanvin and Nicole Miller marked her creative growth. Soon after in 2010, she launched her own line of fashion jewelry and moved back to Beirut to set up her studio and workshop.
Joanna designs with a great deal of whimsy. Her eclectic collections range from the sweet, delicate and sensual to the ultra-edgy and bold. Embracing the duality of a woman, her works represent the feminine as well as the more contemporary, with an urban sense of fearlessness that stems from the core of every individual. Plated in gold and rhodium, her stunning, carefully crafted pieces are encrusted with Swarovski crystals, semi-precious stones and pearls. She chooses and perfects each design, down to the smallest detail. Each piece is unique and features a mix of materials and colors that capture pure, clear emotions, whether they are statement pieces or delicate, refined ones. Each collection features a wide range of designs from necklaces and earrings to asymmetrical pieces, handcuffs, ear cuffs, rings, double rings and more.
Her signature pieces enjoy a celebrity fan base, including the likes of Rihanna, Lady Gaga, Kelly Osbourne, Chiara Ferragni, Jessica Alba, Nicole Scherzinger and more. Joanna’s creations are sold online on modaoperandi.com, luisaviaroma.com and ounass.com. They are also available in boutiques and department stores in various parts of the world, including Le Bon Marché, Lane Crawford, Harvey Nichols and Bergdorf Goodman.
