THE BOOTIE BABE STORY
Bootie Empire LLC CEO Mark O’Hara is the creator of the Bootie Babe beauty and fashion brand. He is also an entertainer, musician, composer and animator.
After graduating in 1990 from California State University, Chico with degrees in Broadcast Journalism and Music, he was hired by Macromedia, a leading multimedia software rm in San Francisco and managed their Authorized Developer program. While working at Macromedia he became very interested in Macintosh computers and graphics and animation software.
In 1993 O’Hara opened up his own digital design house and over the next few years created a variety of interac- tive projects for clients such as Sony, CNET and Macromedia.
In 1995 he formed a 15-piece funk dance band called SuperBooty, a popular group that performed over 350 concerts all over California, including gigs with artists such as Kool and the Gang, The Isley Brothers and P-Funk. O’Hara was responsible for every aspect of the band – management, bookings, nances, music and art direction, web development, promotion and publicity.
It was during this time that he developed the concept for bootie-themed cosmetics and fashion products, starting with a line of tee-shirts and stickers to promote the band at concerts.
He also began working on early 3D prototypes for a bootie-shaped cosmetics line that would later become Bootie Babe. In the Summer of 2010, O’Hara decided to move forward with his cosmetics concept, starting with a line of nail polish .
He noticed that many of the brands were using the same standardized bottle shapes and realized that there was a market for some thing more “custom” and “collectible”. He also thought it would be unique to connect the brand name to the actual shape of the containers for a more integrated presentation.
Over the last eight years O’Hara has been developing the Bootie Babe brand and is currently developing several very exciting new product lines.
