Fashion Focus: Melissa Odabash

Melissa Odabash launched her first swimwear collection in 1999 with the help of Sanela Diana Jenkins. The brand very quickly established itself as the go-to for swimwear by Hollywood A-listers. Kate Moss, Cindy Crawford, Elle Macpherson, Rhianna, Kendall Jenner, Gwyneth Paltrow, Sienna Miller, Heidi Klum, and Beyoncé are among the celebrities who choose Melissa Odabash whilst on holiday.

The aim of the brand has always been to produce collections which sculpt and enhance the silhouette. Timeless pieces designed with clean lines and innovative textiles aim to adapt to all body types.

What makes Odabash swimwear so unique is instead of under-wire or padding, Melissa Odabash uses fine twisted elastic, discreetly sewn into linings.

 As an extension of her luxury collection, Melissa has worked with couture designer Julian MacDonald. Together they have created  5 sold out capsule collections.

 Her collections are distributed in over 50 countries and throughout 500 luxury department stores, boutiques and resorts including her own online web store shipping worldwide.

Collections have regularly included flattering briefs, halter neck tops, twisted bandeaus adorned with buckles, beading, shells, and embroidery.
