Bryan K. Osburn Fashion Designer

About

Designer Bryan K. Osburn started his fashion career in his hometown of Chicago, Illinois in 1985. Realizing his passion for bridal and evening wear, Bryan made the decision to move to the fashion capital of the world, New York City. His gifted hands and luxurious designs landed him his first job on 7th Avenue in the bridal district with Vera Wang. He worked with Vera Wang as a designer in 1987 for 2 years. After making the decision to leave Vera Wang, Bryan took his expertise to other bridal designers such as: Galina, Jim Hjelm, Lazaro and Alvina Valenta.

In 1993 Bryan decided to go out on his own and design under the name Bryan K. Osburn Collection. He sold bridal gowns to high end specialty boutiques throughout New York City, made custom designs for private clientele and later moved into designing for celebrities like Miss America (1994) Kenya Moore, Natalie Cole, Phyliss Hyman, Patti LaBelle, Diana Ross, Opera singer Kathleen Battle, Actresses Sheri Headley, (Coming to America) Valerie Pittford (Half and Half) and Erica Alexander (The Cosby Show).

In 2000 Bryan moved to Province, France where he spent a year and a half designing and participating in fashion shows for international interior designer Paul Mathieu. His time in France expanded his inspiration and he returned to New York City where he decided to move to Charlotte, North Carolina to experience southern culture.

While living in Charlotte, Bryan became the in house designer for various bridal boutiques throughout the metro. Soon after he decided that he wanted to work with private clients and create custom gowns. He designed for eight years in Charlotte and in 2008 he made the decision to move back to the city of Chicago where he started his career.

With 25 years of custom design experience Bryan is back in Chicago doing what he loves, designing custom made bridal and evening wear. Returning to Chicago has reignited his love affair with the people and places that originally inspired his dreams of becoming a designer. His current and past collections can be found at the boutique Borrow A Dress Couture.
