Jessie Andrews is a self-made modern woman. The founder and CEO of four successful business has become a globally sought-after designer, in-demand brand builder, adult and mainstream actress, as well as fashion week front row mainstay.

While her road to entrepreneurship is anything but traditional, it’s seems that her path was one she was destined for. In 2010, Jessie dropped out of high school just three months shy of graduation and headed west to Los Angeles to pursue film and television. Within the year, Jessie became one of the few award winning adult actresses to break through to mainstream—proclaimed an “It Girl” by GQ and more before getting scouted while shopping at an American Apparel store to be the brand’s exclusive model. Jessie transitioned seamlessly to a successful modeling career, shortly after gracing the covers of Paper, LA Weekly, Monster Children, and more. By age 20, Jessie had become not only a successful model, but an International DJ and producer. 

Before her 21st birthday, Jessie started quietly designing fine jewelry as a passion project. Marked by classic simplicity and a delicate personal touch, her Bagatiba line quickly became the go-to celebrity favorite, worn by the Hadids, Jenner’s & Kardashians. As the company grew, it appeared across the pages of many of the top fashion publications globally and her online store’s popularity grew to become one of the top performing stores on Shopify, a platform with over half a million users. Simultaneously, Jessie launched two other fashion brands - Basic Swim, a collection of attainable minimalist swimwear styles plus Basic Sport, a collection of athlesiure wear and Jeu Illimité, a transparent ready-to-wear line. Her motto for fashion is to disrupt the norm and create pieces based not solely on season or collection, but on inspiration and trends as well as practicing sustainability throughout each venture. In 2018 Jessie has also launched the World's First "SPF Highlighter™" under a Skin & Sun Care line called Petiue - "Petiue is a natural solve to beauty's biggest trend that's actually good for your skin." by Forbes.  

Jessie oversees all lines out of her Los Angeles headquarters — 1201 B Studios. By 2019 Andrews has been featured in Forbes, Highsnobiety, Paper, Dazed, i-D, Into the Gloss and Coveteur for innovation in the e-commerce industry and building a fashion empire. Aside from consulting for larger brands, Jessie conceptualized 'Dodge & Donate' - a charity dodgeball event held in different cities, bringing artists and creatives together, to give back in an innovative way. 

In February 2021 'Tase Gallery' emerged in Los Angeles, a retail gallery concept that Andrews created as a place to build connection between product and people. Her brands are often on display for immersive interactive shopping experiences as well as featuring artists such as Hugo Comte, Bryant Giles and Fong Min Liao. Collaborators like Flos, Bulgari, Zara and Vogue have been a large part of the success of 'Tase Gallery'. ‘Tase Home’ has launched as a subset of the gallery where the brand releases furniture for purchase and exclusive collaborations with artists to create unique objects. 

After making her debut mainstream appearance in the A24 released film 'Hot Summer Nights' with Timothee Chalamet and William Fichtner, Jessie appears on HBO hit series Euphoria in Season 2 alongside Zendaya. Press coverage from Euphoria made headlines in Vogue, W Magazine, The Cut and more. Jessie's first lead role in psycho thriller 'Love Bomb' will release mid 2023. 

Following her entrepreneurial journey, Jessie has conceptualized an all-in-one membership platform to empower creators named 'CNTNDR' placing Kirsty Godso Nike Master Trainer as the face of fitness, launching 2024. The success of Jessie’s creative vision for herself and her respective brands have cemented the multi-faceted entrepreneur as a modern muse.
