Fashion Student Designs Available at Lane Bryant

Otis Fashion Students Help Design New Lane Bryant Collection
By California Apparel News

The fashion students at the Otis College of Art and Design had a special assignment last year:

Put together a collection of plus-size work outfits that will be sold at Lane Bryant stores.

The fashion students—whose classes are currently housed inside the California Market Center—came through and now the collection goes on sale Feb. 2 at the retailer’s website, www.lanebryant.com, as well as at two Lane Bryant stores. One store is in the Del Amo Fashion Center near Los Angeles and the other is the chain’s flagship on 34th Street in Manhattan. The pieces sell from $54.95 to $119.95

Lane Bryant worked with a group of 12 students last year to collaborate on the work outfits. The retail chain’s consultants checked in with the students, starting with the initial design and fit process all the way to the final fashion show.

“This collaboration is an important step in our continuing mission to change the conversation regarding plus-size fashion,” said Linda Heasley, Lane Bryant’s president and chief executive. “Working with the future of fashion is incredibly inspiring, and I can’t wait for our customers to see what these talented individuals designed.”

As part of the program, Lane Bryant is contributing $10,000 to the Otis College of Design Scholarship Fund.
