In 2019, Lane Odom set out to further his education, while simultaneously changing his field of study. Upon graduation from Johns Hopkins University with a B.A. in International Studies, Lane enrolled in Parsons School of Design to pursue an A.A.S. Fashion Design degree. After four semesters, he graduated with honors and displayed his senior thesis collection with the Design x NYC student showcase.
Through the post-pandemic uncertainty of 2021, Lane started as an intern for a Swiss plastic-free apparel start-up. There, he quickly became a full-time employee and eventually assumed all responsibilities for product design, development and production, managing a global supply chain of premium materials and top-notch European craftsmanship.
Today, Lane has launched his own capsule collection online under the brand name Vane, and has returned to New York to provide technical design services for emerging designer Quine_Li.
“Not only is Vane about my personal journey as a designer, but I want to establish a business that is going to nurture its community and make its corner of the world a better place” he says.
As Lane advances in his journey in fashion design, he hopes to continue to increase his involvement in the education of the next generation with the knowledge he has gained from his experiences in the industry.
