The story of Jessie Andrews is anything but standard. With only 25 years old, she has already experienced more than many peers. She started at the absolute bottom, but now sells her clothing to the Hadids, Jenners and Kardashians.
High school wasn’t it for Jessie; it was the fashion industry that drew her attention. She went to American Apparel, where she was scouted as a 17-year-old girl for a campaign of the brand. No strange choice, her outer cocktail of Chinese, Irish and Latvian roots make her a special appearance.
Jessie Andrews as a porn star and musician
But why the porn industry? According to Vice, she heard from a friend that you could rake wheelbarrows with money by swinging your nipples as an extra. From one thing the other came quickly and before she knew it, she played the leading role in the videos. A simple search gives you the proof (NSFW, if you have not yet figured it out). Whether she regrets? “Absolutely not. In the beginning I did it for the money, I had great plans and wanted to travel. Afterwards I learned more about life and my sexuality than others do in eighty years. ”

Jessie Andrews as CEO, fashion designer and Insta model
Porn star, musician, modeling, traveling the world to DJ at fancy parties; it was not enough for the then 21-year-old Jessie. Her first love came around the corner: fashion and jewelry. Her label Bagatiba (minimalist jewelry) was a great success, thanks to the promotion of all women who are related in one way or another to Kanye West and apparently have a career on Instagram. This also applies to Jessie himself, who now has 265k followers.
Instead of throwing the freshly steamed flaps over the bar, she decided to invest the money in two fashion labels: Basic Swim and Jeu Illimité. As befits a true start-up CEO, she interferes with everything. The designs, the production, distribution and even the development of the web stores. She is now 25 and the first million is a fact. And the porn she ever made? She is still proud of that: “I could never have been where I am now, if I had not been working in porn.” So, all the prejudices can go into the trash.
