About

ODYSAY is a Swiss ready-to-wear brand founded in Geneva by Sona Sidalova Barras. When Odysay was created in 2015, we envisioned a brand with a strong sense of purpose – a brand centered on beauty that promotes sustainability and empowers women. Inspired by these values, our philosophy is to connect beauty back to the everyday with sustainably crafted pieces that remain impeccable over the years. This uncompromising philosophy transcends the boundaries of luxury and shapes the way we create our garments. 

The Odysay silhouette is elegant and daring at the same time - the outcome of a harmonious dance between a clean aesthetic and highly feminine accents. It is deliberately uncluttered to create garments that favor a lasting style over fleeting trends. Each of our garments is crafted with the finest Italian fabrics made of 100% natural fibers. Beyond their superior quality, our silks and cottons are soft, breathable, featherweight, and more sustainable than their synthetic counterparts. By using them for both the outside and the inside of our clothing, we obtain a perfectly cut garment that feels almost like a second skin.

We manufacture all our garments by hand in small ateliers located in Europe (Slovakia) and run exclusively by women. This choice guarantees the quality of our exclusive pieces produced in limited quantities. It also allows us to remain true to our core values. We favor sustainability because all our materials are sourced locally and used carefully. As a result, we minimize waste and transportation costs. We are also committed to empowering women. By cultivating a collaborative and pleasant working environment, we enable them to develop their unique craftsmanship and entrepreneurial skills.

Odysay started its activities with a line of evening wear. This collection was showcased at the Vancouver Fashion Week in September 2017 and featured in several fashion publications such as British Vogue and Bolero in Switzerland (see below). 

Now, we think it is time to expand our offering and design garments that our clients can also wear on more casual occasions. The idea behind our ready to wear collection is to infuse the brand’s aesthetics into more easy to wear pieces. The collection is crafted from premium Italian cotton and lightweight silk -  the signature feature of Odysay – to bring luxury and comfort into your everyday life. It features strong, elegant pieces that can be mixed and matched, and worn in a multitude of ways. 

This new project is very dear to us because it reflects the philosophy of Odysay. Our garments are not meant to be saved for best. Instead, we want to create garments that carry your memories as they make you feel special on many occasions. To make this happen, we need your help to support our Kickstarter campaign.

 You will be able to confirm your order details and size at the end of the campaign. We will send you a survey where you will be able to confirm your item, color, size (we will provide a detailed measurement chart for each item) and length. 

We recommend that you measure yourself to find the right size

You will also be able to choose from two heights: 170cm or 176cm. Please note that the adjustment is made at the skirt length only. 

Shipping is included in the price for all orders. Rewards will be shipped in May or in June 2019 depending on your order. 

Duty/VAT charges: If you live outside of the EU or Switzerland, you will be responsible for any applicable duty/VAT charges.

 If you are not 100% satisfied with your product, you can return or exchange it within 15 days of receiving your order. No questions asked. Please e-mail us at contact@odysay.ch and we will let you know how to proceed to return / exchange your item. You will be responsible for the cost of shipping your item back to us. But don't worry,  we are confident you will love your ODYSAY garment. 

If you are between two sizes but you still wish to keep your item, we will offer you alteration options whenever possible. 

If successful, the Kickstarter campaign will allow ODYSAY to produce the first the ready-to-wear collection we’ve all been waiting for. By reaching our goal, we will be able to cover our costs of production including manufacturing and fabric costs.

Firstly, the amount raised will help cover our collection development costs (pattern development, prototypes manufacturing etc). Secondly, the funds will be used to cover our production costs including materials, trim and manufacturing costs.  Lastly, the money collected will help us open a new atelier in Slovakia. This atelier will allow ODYSAY to have full control over our production to ensure the best quality. The goal is to bring sustainability and transparency to the fashion industry supply chain.

 Our sizes range from a european size 32 to a european size 44. The size chart below is indicative only and we will send you a detailed measuring chart for the item you have ordered at the end of the campaign. If you are unsure of the size you wish to order please e-mail us at contact@odysay.ch and we will be happy to assist you. If your size is not on the chart below please contact us by e-mail and we will try to accommodate you as much as we can.

 'Just a little note to let you know that your dress was a real success. Everyone thought it was bespoke. A big thank you'. Yvonne S. (Yvonne wore Olympe dress for her wedding)

'An ODYSAY dress is for me the combination of elegance, beauty and exclusivity. When looking for a dress I always look for a piece that will make me feel at ease, beautiful and self-confident. ODYSAY encompasses all of the above.' Michaella L. (Michaella chose our Maud and our Olympe dress)                    

'I like the simplicity of the ODYSAY dresses. The clean lines and the delicate materials used define the silhouette and flatter the woman wearing it. No clutter or unnecessary extravagance: simplicity at its best. The absolute grace' Marie-Eve. M (Marie-Eve chose our Olympe dress for the opening ceremony of the International Film Festival in Salé)                                                                                      

'Thank you for the dress! It's simply stunning.' Sarah. B. (Sarah wears our Aliénor dress) 

Sona was born in Slovakia and raised in North Africa. She holds a BA in business studies from the University of Geneva and a masters degree in international economics and finance from the Bocconi University in Milan. She worked in corporate finance in Geneva, London and Montréal before launching ODYSAY in 2015. She is mostly a self-taught designer, works with her feeling, determination and a strong sense of values and identity. She now lives between Geneva where ODYSAY is based and Montreal where her husband works.

Risks and challenges

ODYSAY has been up and running for more than three years now and our supply chain is already in place and has been tested. We developed a very strong relationship with our manufacturing ateliers and our suppliers (trim, fabric etc) and we have experience in solving problems when they arise. We are therefore confident that there is limited risk involved in this project. Nevertheless, delays can always occur but we will keep you informed on our progress and we will work endlessly to get the pieces into your hands.

The main challenge for us consists of achieving the end goal of our Kickstarter campaign and raising the necessary funds.
