Jessie Andrews Is Today's Modern Woman

After getting her start in the adult film industry, she is now an established DJ and jewelry designer traveling the world.

Jessie Andrews showed up at our studio on a Saturday afternoon, her first time in Hong Kong. She had arrived in the city quite late the night before and had went on a hike the morning after. Showing up in a plain black summer dress, she is virtually sans makeup and has her hair falling loosely around her shoulders. As soon as we do quick introductions, she offers me some green tea chocolate. In between comparing analog cameras with the creative team and joking about her wardrobe in an endearingly self-deprecating fashion, Jessie Andrews is personable in a way that I would never have expected.

After being recruited for American Apparel ads from the shop floor, she soon made a name for herself in the adult film industry at age 18. Winning awards for her work in films such as Portrait of a Call Girl, all eyes were on Jessie Andrews. Eloquently conveyed and utterly honest, Jessie has always been frank about her experiences in the adult film industry. She overturns misconceptions at every turn and has successfully transformed her moniker (Jessie Andrews is a combination of her mother’s dog’s name, Jessie, and the name of the street that she was driving on at the time, Andrews) into a bona fide brand. Possessing an unwavering love for her body that she attributes to her acting career, Jessie has a complex understanding of how modern society affects young women and their appreciation of their bodies.

When she’s not traveling between her adopted home, Los Angeles, and native Miami, the 24-year-old is a globetrotter who traverses all across the world as a DJ recognized for her distinct funk-infused Miami house sound. On top of that, she has a jewelry line Bagatiba that offers beautifully minimalistic pieces that she describes as practical, yet lavish. Never one to shy away from speaking her mind or talking about the tough stuff, Jessie Andrews is a woman who understands the intricacies of a culture steeped in expectations and categories. At the end of the day, she just wants to inspire. As living proof that passion and hard work are an infallible combination, Jessie wants to motivate individuals to persevere, regardless of their circumstances. Whether she is a porn actress, a musician or a jewelry designer, she is at her core just a woman who wants to do great things. Jessie Andrews is, quite plainly, the product of today’s dynamic cultural landscape – a modern woman.
