Odessa Paloma Parker is the fashion editor at The Globe and Mail, Canada’s national newspaper. She received an Honours BA from the University of Toronto and a Book & Magazine Publishing Certificate from Centennial College.
For three years she ran the magazine she co-founded, Plaid. The goal of Plaid was to be “inspirational, not aspirational” and to provide as much locally-focused content as possible. After closing Plaid, Odessa joined the artist agency Judy Inc. and forged relationships with clients including The Globe and Mail, The Grid, Anu Raina, Cosmo TV and Entertainment Tonight Canada. She is also the founder of Vintage Crawl Toronto, and has organized and provided public relations services for pop-ups and trunks shows around the city.
Odessa is interested in creating dynamic projects and improving people’s lives through the power of style.
