Clients, Friends, and Partners,

A decade ago, a chance meeting in Warsaw brought the two of us together. We were young and full of dreams, eager to find our place in the world. We had just finished our studies and were filled with uncertainty about our professional futures. Brygida, with her unwavering passion for fashion,
envisioned a life amidst runways and glamorous photo shoots. Her journey began with an internship and eventually led her to work as a stylist for Polish fashion magazines. Justyna, having completed her studies in Art History, was
exploring the art world, trying her hand as an art dealer and taking her first steps in social media at the Centre for Contemporary Art in Warsaw. Back then, Warsaw was a vibrant playground for twenty-somethings, full of fashion shows
and after-parties.

One late night, we found ourselves in a deep conversation about how we could never find the perfect T-shirts or simple backless pieces in stores. Why not create a small collection and try to start a brand?  Back in 2014, this wasn't a walk in the park, but we knew we could create something different. We
were on a mission to give women more than just clothes—we wanted to help them build confidence.

In all that euphoria we were also naive enough to think It would be smooth sailing— well, it wasn’t. We weren't taken seriously and faced countless rejections from manufactures. In a short space of time, we heard more "NOs" than we
had in our entire lives. But we refused to give up. We believed wholeheartedly in The Odder Side and, most importantly, we had each other. So, we kept pushing. In 2014, we finally launched our first eight pieces: two backless T-shirts, a backless sweatshirt, two tops, two skirts, and a dress. Our first boutique? Justyna’s apartment, where our initial clients shopped amidst cozy chaos, with Justyna’s dog charming everyone as our unofficial mascot.

Since then, each like, comment, and purchase has fuelled our journey and transformed our dream into reality. You've been with us every step of the way; your trust and encouragement have been our greatest motivation. As we celebrate our 10th anniversary, we are overwhelmed with gratitude and emotion. What began with just the two of us has now evolved into a dedicated team of nearly 100 talented individuals who share our passion and vision. Together, we
have opened seven stores, including locations in Paris and Amsterdam. Each store embodies the spirit of The Odder Side, offering a space for our community
to connect with our brand on a deeper level. Today we are shipping our packages all over the world.

The Odder Side has grown beyond a brand; it has become a lifestyle,
accompanying us and our clients through life’s significant moments. From everyday wear to special occasions, our pieces have been there, effortlessly combining simplicity, comfort, and timeless style to your lives. It’s heartwarming to know that our creations have been part of your stories,
milestones, and cherished memories.

So here's to you all, who believed in us and have been a part of The Odder Side through all those years.  Here's to the late nights, the early mornings, and every challenge that made us stronger. And most importantly, here's to the future—because this journey is far from over, and we can't wait to see what the next decade holds.

Thank you for
being part of our story.

With love and gratitude,

Justyna and Brygida
