  • Composer Kubilay Üner offers a “reactive” experience with a live presentation of a new composition made in response to the exhibition Angie Bray: Shhhh. The performance will be interspersed with conversation between Üner and Bray.

  • Kathryn Andrews gets some of her best ideas driving around Los Angeles, where the visual contradictions she sees every day find their way into her art. Andrews, who is originally from Mobile, Alabama, is known for the commonplace objects she fabricates from highly polished and painted metal, into which she incorporates inexpensive or borrowed finds, including rented Hollywood props.

Johnson Hartig of Libertine, Monique Lhuillier, Trina Turk, Leon Max and John Varvatos to Instruct and Inspire Fashion Design Students This School Year Nike, Disney Store, Cotton Inc, Nordstrom, Tommy Bahama Also Back to School at Otis College of Art and Design
Los Angeles, CA., (October 10, 2007) – Otis College of Art and Design’s Fashion Design Department announces the professional designers who will mentor students during the 2007/08 school year. They are, for the Senior Class, Johnson Hartig of Libertine, John Varvatos for Converse, Monique Lhuillier, Trina Turk, Leon Max (with Cotton Inc.), and Ivy Ross from Disney Store. The Junior class will work under the direction of swimwear designer Rod Beattie for La Blanca, and top designers at Nike, Nordstrom, Tommy Bahama, Roxy and Abercrombie & Fitch.


These professional designers volunteer their time to provide direction to a small group of juniors and seniors who then work through the design process —researching, sketching, fabric draping to construction of final garment —all under the guidance of the professional design mentor and the Otis fashion design faculty.


For example, Leon Max in cooperation with Cotton Inc. has given 14 members of the Otis Fashion senior class the following design direction:
Design a dramatic and unconventional white cotton shirt that is an artpiece when paired with a simple black bottom. Think “shapes in opposition.” Consider origami and pleating. Review the book The Art of Manipulated Fabric by Colette Wolff.
The best work by these student designers will be presented on the runway on May 3, 2008 at Otis College of Art and Design’s annual scholarship fundraising gala.


The mentorship program, developed by Otis Fashion Design Chair Rose Brantley, is unique to Otis, and is the primary reason that Otis is considered one of the best fashion design schools in the country. Past design mentors for Otis’ Fashion Design program include Francisco Costa for Calvin Klein, Vera Wang, Bob Mackie, Diane von Furstenberg, Isabel Toledo, Yeohlee Teng, Behnaz Sarafpour, Isaac Mizrahi, Todd Oldham, Nicole Miller, Jeremy Scott and Rick Owens.


“Otis is especially thrilled to have the involvement of ‘first timers’ Johnson Hartig, Monique Lhuillier and Ivy Ross“ said Brantley. “And we are also appreciative of our corporate sponsors who provide important funding for ‘real world’ design projects.” Sponsors for the 2007/08 school year are: Cotton Inc., Tommy Bahama, Nike, Quiksilver, Nordstrom, Abercrombie & Fitch.
