Clean and classic design


Collection: "March Forward"

"MARCH FOWARD" is a collection of garments that combines classic silhouettes of the 1940's with a modern edge. It is military inspired, playing on the contrast of utilitarian pieces and feminine accents. Originally inspired by a pair of 1940's Australian-made wool military trousers,  "March Forward" is heavy in its detailing of buttons, straps and chains.  The print is my homage to Picasso,  continuing the theme of simple, clean design. 

Fall 2018 Models: Kelcie Johnson, Lauren Thompson, Viktoriya Vasilizhenko


About Luci Byrne

"I am a Senior Fashion Design major at the Columbus College of Art and Design. My goal is to create clothing that make the wearer feel effortlessly chic. I love Parisian style, and combining femininity with utilitarian touches. I enjoy playing with orange hues, and anything that feels nostalgic. If I were to describe my style it would be clean and classic, with finely-crafted details.  

Growing up in the Short North Arts district of Columbus, I have always felt drawn to and inspired by the local artists around me. Living in a neighborhood filled with so much art and diversity shaped me into the person I am today. Fashion, in particular, has been a major outlet of expression for me since I was a young child. Well put-together clothing done in unexpected ways is powerful, impactful, and liberating to the wearer.

This past summer I traveled to London, where I took a tailoring course at UAL, while soaking up the city’s timeless creative vibe. That experience influenced the collection that I produced this year, that made it through a rigorous jury process, and (was) included in the 2018 CCAD Spring Fashion Show. When I'm not designing clothing, I am drinking coffee, teaching myself new ways to make art, taking photos on my film camera, and listening to music."  read more at
