Odi’e Fashion & Design has been custom sewing and tailoring in and around Flathead Valley, MT since 2006. “It’s important for me to stay up-to-date on the latest trends, while honing my technical skills.”
“My approach is traditional with a modern edge. I offer sensible advice and an authentic, high-quality level of workmanship. My clients come away with a personalized level of service they don’t receive anywhere else.”
Born in Sidney, NY; Odi’e (nickname), otherwise known as Amanda Haynes, moved to Montana at the age of 5 with her family. There she grew up hiking, fishing, hunting, snowmobiling, and horseback riding with her brother and parents. Home schooled, she learned fine arts, sewing, and drama from her mother and father, and at the age of thirteen she started altering her Dad’s flannel shirts into medieval shirts. Mostly self taught Odi’e started fashion design in costuming, taking sewing design in the last two years of school instead of Trig and Algebra (which she still had to take in college).
Odi’e has completed an AA, AAS in Business and AAS in Graphic Design at FVCC, and BAS in Communications and Business at MSUB. Among her pursuits are photo, video, and graphic design which she ran under Coelacanth Productions LLC in a studio in downtown Kalispell for 5 years. She also started in 2018 WEE Extraordinary Embroideries an apparel embroidery business which has since been partially combined into her sewing and tailoring business.
Currently, Odi’e married and moved to off grid living and starting a wedding venue (@48degreesnorth2.0 which can be found on Instagram) with her wonderful partner in life Jesse.
