Jessie Andrews born March 22,  is a retired adult film actress ,  designer , producer , model , DJ , entrepreneur and photographer. Andrews is of mixed heritage. On her mother's side, she is of Irish and Latvian descent. By age 26, Jessie was interviewed by Forbes ,  Coveteur,  Paper Magazine  and International Business Times  on how she is revolutionizing business and growth in the fashion industry. While in high school,  Andrews was working as a sales associate for American Apparel.
Going from ex-adult star to entrepreneur, Andrews has mastered the art of the rebrand, both professionally and personally. Having dropped out of high school in Florida just three weeks shy of graduation, she moved to L. Now, her designs are worn by celebrities including Kaia Gerber and Kim Kardashian. A rebrand is more than just a logo change — it requires vision, and the strength to bounce back from adversity and create something authentic. Can you take me back to the early years — what stimulated your creativity? I grew up in Miami and had four older sisters.
All Rights Reserved. To one person, she might be described as a former porn star —her original claim to fame—or the model who used to appear in American Apparel ads back in the day. Andrews talks about her small empire so casually that it might take you a moment to realize just how brilliant she is. Even more impressive, Andrews is basically a one-woman show: She designs, organizes, packs, and even ships her stuff herself; it was only recently that she hired another person to help her out. Plus, her success is based on merit alone. Jessie is quick to admit that she kept her identity hidden at first, simply because she knew the stigma associated with her porn career. So what made her pursue fashion? How did she get her start?
