Something Grand

Odette & Odi is a clothing brand with ethical practice at its core. It is a part of Something Grand. In today’s world clothing is an expression of personal style, of wealth, or (at the very least) a tool that enables the majority of us to conform to the social expectation of ‘decency’. However, in the clothing sector Something Grand is beginning to happen. Day by day an increasing number of brands are becoming aware of the negative social and environmental impacts of clothing. This growing movement in the garment sector recognises the need for a new approach to clothing and fashion. Odette & Odi plan to be a part of this movement by using organic fabrics wherever possible, with the ultimate aim of producing products with minimal environmental impact. It will also diligently ensure that all people in the supply chain are treated fairly and with dignity. Odette & Odi will be a leader in transparency and accountability, sharing with its customers the information they care about. Finally, Odette & Odi will produce classically beautiful products that are designed to make their wearers feel empowered, and a little bit luxurious, without having to empty their bank accounts.
