Melissa Odabash

"The Ferraris of the bikini world" – that's how British Vogue described swimwear from Melissa Odabash, founded by the American swimwear model of the same name. During her modeling career, Odabash struggled to find swimwear that she herself liked, prompting her to start her own brand. Her designs are particularly inspired by Italian fashion and her time as a swimwear model in Italy, where the first styles were created. Her designs quickly gained attention on Tyra Banks, Naomi Campbell, and in Sports Illustrated, propelling her career forward. Today, Odabash continues to create beautiful swimwear with an American/Italian-inspired aesthetic, using luxurious materials and offering excellent fits.
