You are a popular Model & Actress in states ,do you remember of the first experience in the fashion sector?
How old were you?
“My first experience in fashion was working for Guess jeans in a retail store in the bay area when I first moved to the U.S. I was then accepted into the Miss California pageant and Guess sponsored me, so they flew me down to the headquarters in LA and I got to design my own gown for the pageant with the head designer of Marciano- one of their higher end lines.”
You did a lot of Movies ,the last was “The Dupplier” and it was last month ,tell us How did you live this experience?
