Jessa joined Kinsman Swim last season, and ultimately WOW’d the crowd with a look that could melt a room. The photos alone speak for themselves, and onlookers of LA Fashion were hooked, craving more of Jessa’s fierce presence on the runway. Jessa was crowned Miss Teen California USA 2014, and it has been such an honor to work with such an accomplished individual. She blew me away with how intelligent, sweet, and professional she was, and at such a young age. This year, we just had to make Jessa the closing look at LA Style Fashion Week, and what a perfect decision that was. We recently interviewed this amazing model:

Which types of modeling do you primarily focus on? What is your favorite and why?
I enjoy all types of modeling but if I had to pick one it’d be editorial, mostly because I love creating a story with my poses and I also really enjoy messing around with the crew.

When did you first start into modeling? Tell us about your first photo shoot.
I was discovered walking down Newport Beach but had a horse show/barrel race and could not go. I was then invited to a group shoot when I was 16 years old and the thought “hmm maybe this is something that I can do professionally” stayed in my mind. I had such a blast shooting with many photographers.

What is your favorite part of modeling? How has it impacted your life?
My favorite part of modeling is making memories and making lifetime friends. The memories and friends are something that I will cherish for the rest of my life.

If you could plan your ideal photo shoot with you as the model, what would this entail?
My ideal photo shoot… hmm.. I had to really think about this because I have so many ideas! I think that the number one idea of my ideal photo shoot would be to shoot with exotic animals at the beach! Lions, tigers, and bears oh my! And a giraffe and maybe even an elephant! can we make this happen? (:

LOL sure! Anything for you!

What is your passion? Dream job?
I’m a very passionate person who has many interests. When it comes down to my true passion, the one that I have had since I was a child, it would be horses. Being able to communicate with a huge animal by a language that very few can understand and to meet each other half way is such a magnificent feeling. It truly is like no other. It brings out this fire in me even just talking about it! I just love horses.
What is your biggest goal as a model?
My biggest goal as a model is to walk for channel in Paris and to work with Victoria’s Secret.

Where can people find you online?
All of my social media is under Jessa Cygan (:

Can you describe shooting with Kinsman Swim?
I love Kinsman Swim not only are the bikinis absolutely stunning and jaw dropping but the lady behind it all is so genuine and sweet. It is so refreshing to work with a designer such as Joanna.

Being backstage at LA fashion week can be super stressful and fast paced making sure all of these already perfect girls look even more perfect by the time we walk on stage, it only makes sense for some designers to lose a screw or two but of course Joanna knows how to calm the sea and make it a fun environment and experience. The theme on the runway was tribal; I wanted to take home every single bikini! They were so cute! And the accessories by BVNDI couldn’t have been more well fitted to the tribal attire. Safe to say that Kinsman Swim has made a lasting impression of perfection meets flawless.


I’m blushing! Jessa thank you for being such an inspiration, one of the sweetest models I know, and a beautiful, irreplaceable part of the Kinsman Swim runway shows. We have many years ahead of us working together and it’s only going to get better and more brilliant! I have no doubt that you will accomplish ALL of your dreams in this lifetime.
