I Want To Wear That..Designers

Shawnell O'Shea is a company founded by Brandi Shawnell and her husband, Michael O'Shea to provide women with modern, high-end swimsuits.

Women are beautiful creatures who want to be noticed in the classiest way, and that is what Shawnell O'Shea swimwear is designed to do - provide women with beautiful, stand-out swimsuits, which encompass quality and durability.  All garments are made in the U.S. (San Francisco, CA). 

Mission:  To provide women with high quality, modern, fashion-forward swimwear that will be a must have in their summer wardrobe. 

Brandi Shawnell is an American swimwear designer who was born and raised in Texas and now resides in California, where all of her swimsuits are manufactured.

Brandi studied with such designers as Andy South from “Project Runway” Season 8 and Vinh Buu of Vagrant Dandy while obtaining her degree in Fashion Design at The University of Hawai’i. She still pulls inspiration from her 4 ½ years of living on O’ahu.  Her designs are inspired by modern architecture and her love for contemporary fashion. 

Shawnell O’Shea Designs believes it is very important to support local and small businesses and give entrepreneurs a chance to serve you when possible.  Small businesses typically possess exclusive products and services, whereas larger chain organizations have a more generalized inventory and tend to outsource many of their jobs.  Shawnell O’Shea Designs is a proud supporter of using only United States-based companies, from fabric and trims to patterns and manufacturing.  All of the processes to create your new summer look are performed in the U.S.   

More about Brandi:  Growing up in a small town in Texas, I sometimes felt as though I had actually been from L.A. but was dropped off in the middle of nowhere as an infant as a cruel prank.  I always had a “different” style than the people I went to school with, and it turned into a love for fashion.  During college, I really enjoyed classes such as draping, wedding gown design and fashion design, but it wasn’t until I took Swimwear Design that I really found my niche.
