The Interview — Amanda Wall, Creative Director of R+Co
R+Co Creative director Amanda Wall has it all: brains, looks, and a total girl boss mentality. She’s responsible for the badass imagery on all your fave R+Co products, and you can even spot her modeling the ultimate cool-girl hairstyles by R+Co co-founder Howard McLaren. After another collaboration with Howard, Whitehouse was born, a studio, concept store, and salon in Los Angeles. Amanda started as the Creative Director—totally in her element. She designed the entire look and feel of the studio, working on the interior design of the space, website and branding. She has since expanded the brand and created a new branch within the company, a boutique-modeling agency, Whitehouse Models. In creating the agency, Amanda street cast all of their models with a character look in mind, rather than the typical “model” image which was definitely out of the norm for the LA fashion industry. Amanda gathered a group of punk rock girls and had Howard create “cool-girl” haircuts to define their looks and personal styles. For more on Amanda, follow her on Instagram and check out R+Co.
