Interest in Pinterest

It is safe to say we've become a little bit obsessed with online pinboard Pinterest at Odabash HQ this week. There is nothing more exciting than having a look through someone's sketchbooks or moodboards (just us?!) so for us to have unlimited access to hundreds of thousands of personal collages is pretty great! Check out ours - Melissa will be uploading images that inspire her collections, locations she's been to or is planning to go to, favourite photographers & photographs that encapsulate her London life. Check it out!

Melissa Models Odabash & Macdonald for Hello!

Check out Melissa getting back to her modelling roots here in Hello! magazine this month - she & good friend and collaborator Julien Macdonald gave an exclusive interview about their friendship, how they work together & of course, a few juicy bits of gossip you won't hear anywhere else! Melissa was then photographed in a succession of pieces from the O&M collection. All set in the luxurious surroundings of The Sanctuary, Covent Garden's glamorous day-spa...though there was unfortunately no time for a quick treatment as it was all work work work!

Also seen wearing Odabash&Macdonald in this week's Grazia magazine was none other than the lovely Whitney Port - putting her fashion experience gained at Diane von Furstenburg, Peoples Revolution & Teen Vogue to good use by becoming a new judge on Britain & Ireland's Next Top Model alongside Julien - lending a touch of old-school glamour to the 'Coleen' luxe kaftan.
