Fashion Design

Alumnus Scott Williams

Scott Williams (’90, Fashion Design) is Creative Director of Sport Innovation and Olympics at NIKE.

Alumnus Rick Owens

As a member of the Los Four collective, together with Frank Romero, Roberto de la Rocha and Gilbert Lujan, and his wife Elsa Flores Almaraz, he collaborated on many public murals in L.A. He was also a prolific painter and printmaker whose work captured the vitality and life of East Los Angeles neighborhoods such as Echo Park with bright violets, hot pinks and bloodlike reds and expressionistic paint handling. From his apartment window, he painted the view in various incarnations, from serenely bucolic to hot, feverish and dangerous.

Alumnus Eduardo Lucero

Among fashionistas, Los Angeles designer Eduardo Lucero ('87) is a red carpet favorite, stemming in part from his celebration of the sensual Latin-American culture of his origins.

Alumnus David Le Vey

"Costume design uses the language of fashion to create characters, and to place them with great precision and delicacy into the visual and emotional landscape, and the social context, of a specific time and place. Clothes express infinite shadings of personality, from the broadest strokes to the subtlest suggestion; they tell a story.

Alumnus Kristopher Enuke

Born in Nigeria, and educated in England, Kristopher Enuke (’84) decided to study fashion far away from home. After Otis, he stayed in the U.S., working for designers including BCBG. Through freelance work, he began designing and selling his own apparel, concentrating on hand-knit sweaters in his Oliver Twist line, which he sold to high-end retailers such as Maxfield and Bergdorf Goodman. Ten years later, in 2002, he diversified into jeans and created his denim brand, Oligo Tissew (“refined cloth”).
