Han Cholo

Born and raised in Los Angeles, California, “Han Cholo” designer Brandon Schoolhouse, grew up immersed in the sub culture of Hollywood’s art and music scene. In high school Brandon took classes for metal works, and always had a knack for designing jewelry for himself and friends. In 1995, Brandon started working for the band “Beastie Boys” for their record label “Grand Royal”, where he managed many different aspects of the label. While working with “Grand Royal”, Brandon learned how to DJ, and thus Brandon’s alter ego, Han Cholo, was born. After several years working for the Beastie Boys, Brandon parted ways with Grand Royal, and made his name by spinning at LA’s hottest nightclubs and the most exclusive parties. During the day, Brandon worked as a wardrobe stylist, where he styled several music videos, print ads, fashion editorials and album packaging. At the same time, Brandon began to utilize his drawing abilities, and would design jewelry, that he would use to accessorize many of his celebrity clients with. As Han Cholo is so greatly influenced by Rock N’ Roll, Science Fiction, Fantasy Art, and the Los Angeles Culture, the line has become the “it” accessory among Hollywood fashionistas and celebrities alike.
