About Melissa Odabash
Melissa Odabash is from New Jersey and led a very successful career as a swimwear model in Italy. Inspired by the lack of swimwear styles, she started her own line.
Melissa Odabash swimwear was launched in 1999, as a small capsule collection in Italy. She wanted to create something she herself would wear. Shortly after, Melissa’s pieces featured on Tyra Banks and Naomi Campbell in the Sports Illustrated calendar followed by Victoria Secret stocking one of her designs leading to Melissa Odabash quickly becoming internationally recognised as a timeless brand that ‘re-introduced high fashion into the swimwear world.’
The brands designes are developed to sculpt and enhance the silhouette of all woman. The bikini is a must-have for the distinguished global traveller. Shortly after its launch, British Vogue named Melissa Odabash, 'the Ferrari's of the bikini world' making it clear that the brand had a strong, luxury position in the swimwear market.
Each collection illustrates signature Odabash style and quality. From the finest quality Italian swimwear fabrics to re-worked archived and vintage prints that are ethically sourced and manufactured. Small and considered capsule collections have been skilfully produced from regenerated yarns and sustainable fabric to continuously work towards reducing the brands environmental impact. To the multiple fittings of swim and beachwear garments before every collection launch, personally conducted by Melissa to ensure each items fit is perfected before reaching the customer.
