On Monday I had the pleasure of doing the hair and makeup styling for www.otisandmaclain.com
Otis & Maclain was created by co-owners/designers, Shamani Hall and Andrea Cheatham. Shamani has attended both the Fashion Institute of Design and Merchandising in Los Angeles and the Fashion Institute of Technology in New York City and has a degree in visual communications. Andrea attended the University of Missouri, Columbia and earned a bachelor’s degree in fashion merchandising and management and a minor in business. She also has a jewelry line, Andrea Cheatham Vintage.
Shamani and Andrea have both managed Madison, a chain of clothing boutiques in Los Angeles, where they met in 2006. Otis & Maclain originated out of Andrea and Shamani’s desire to create a unique clothing line that uses simple, versatile body styles mixed with hand-picked silks and rayons that are easy to wear but fashion forward.
