Background information, with thanks to our friend Lizzie Bramlett of The Vintage Traveler and Vintage Fashion Guild:
Born in Syria, Odette Barsa emigrated to the U.S. and married successful businessman Simon Barsa in 1922. After the stock market crash, she began a small lingerie-manufacturing business to help make ends meet. Her products were luxurious, employing imported, high-quality fabrics. She introduced the American market to the ballerina length, which became popular in the 1950s. She died in 1975.
