Odette Álvarez

The ready-to-wear brand for women Teté by Odette was created by Odette Álvarez in Santander in 2009. Her name, Teté, is due to the affectionate nickname with which her loved ones have referred to the designer since childhood. From a very young age, Odette began to be interested in fashion thanks to the work that she sees in her own house, always with the needle in hand, her mother and her grandmother always designed and made her clothes.

The great step towards professionalization comes when the self-taught designer realizes that her style fascinates her friends so much that they all insist on wanting to buy and wear clothes equal to those she designs and makes for herself. It is then that she decides to make her dream come true that, to this day, she employs more than 60 people and makes two collections a year, as well as different capsules and special editions. Currently, the workshop and headquarters are located in Santander, the city where she resides.

Since 2013, the year she presents her first collection entitled Amore, Teté by Odette has developed a total of 15, being Ethnic SS 2020, the first with which the firm joins the official calendar of Mercedes Benz Fashion Week Madrid, within the off program, with a parade held at the Wellington Hotel in Madrid.

Now, after a decade at the helm of the brand, the designer takes a step forward by creating the Odette Álvarez label, with the purpose of creating a first line dedicated to limited edition and tailor-made collections that will be presented on the catwalk.

Collection lines


Freya, the title of Odette Alvarez's winter collection, is inspired by the icy cinematographic universe of the dark fantasy film `The Huntsman: Winter´s war´. The sumptuousness of damask fabrics and fur skins are the common thread of a warm and urban proposal for women who choose the luxury of wearing a garment handcrafted in Spain.

Wool and anorak fabrics, feather and sequin applications, farmed fur and noble fabrics such as taffeta and satin appear in silhouettes full of volumes in sleeves and body giving way to midi and long length pieces.

Electric blue, fuchsia, pastels, ivory and black are some of the shades that appear in the collection.
