Prior to launching her first collection in 1995, Melissa Odabash was modeling for top Italian and French designers. As a former catwalk and swimwear model she knows a thing or two about swimwear. "The stuff I had to wear was hideous," she says, "I was modeling suits that were sparkly and tacky and I just thought: I can do better than this." So she did - creating her first bikinis by hand and taking them around to the boutiques of Milan. Her designs are inspired by Italian fashion and her collection reflects styles of simplicity and high quality fabrics with a timeless elegance.
“Each swimsuit I design is like a work of art” says Melissa. “The harmony that exists between the design and the female body needs to be complete in order to project the desired inner confidence and inspire admiration”. Instead of under-wire or padding, she uses fine twisted elastic, discreetly sewn into linings. The linings are made of delicate lingerie material instead of the thicker, traditional linings that often prove uncomfortable.
Collections have included flattering briefs, halter neck tops, twisted bandeaus adorned with beading, shells and embroidery. The suits are made for all body types, but all have the same principle aim: to help people feel good about themselves when they are most self-conscious.
Celebrities including Kate Moss, Jennifer Lopez, Paris Hilton, Elle Macpherson, Victoria Beckham, Catherine Zeta Jones, Teri Hatcher, Beyonce, Uma Thurman, Sarah Jessica Parker, Heidi Klum, Halle Berry and Cindy Crawford all choose Odabash when holidaying themselves. Odabash swim and resort wear has been featured in countless European and U.S. fashion publications. Because of the high quality, style and fit the Odabash collection has become highly sought after, not only by celebrities, but by women of all shapes and ages around the world.
