Born and raised in the multi-island nation of St. Vincent and the Grenadines, Peta Odini Sutherland is a fashion designer and marketing professional currently living in St. Vincent. After working as a Marketing Executive at a local telecommunications company, Odini moved to London to pursue studies in fashion. She completed the Fashion Foundation course at the London College of Fashion and then moved on to Ravensbourne in 2009.
At Ravensbourne she started out as a textile print design student, however after doing a menswear elective, the additional pattern cutting and manufacturing techniques necessary to create the right fit and feel in the construction of men’s clothing soon won over. She transferred to the Menswear group in the last term of her first year and went on to graduate in the summer of 2012 with a BA (Hons) Fashion with specialism in Menswear.
Following the completion of her BA, Sutherland then went on to Seneca College in Toronto where she attained a Post Graduate Certificate in Brand Management after which she returned to the Caribbean in late 2013 and worked as an Account Executive at an advertising agency in Trinidad.
In 2014, Odini officially launched her brand Peta Odini with the debut of its first full collection titled “Sans Peur”.
Sutherland continues to push the boundaries of fashion in the Caribbean and is utilizing her fashion studies along with her marketing and advertising experience to build Peta Odini into a leading lifestyle brand. The brand is available at stockists in St. Vincent, Trinidad and the USA and its printed apparel online at petaodini.com
