Alessandra Garcia-Lorido is a Los Angeles born, New York City based model. She has worked with brands such as Dolce & Gabbana, Christian Siriano, Marina Rinaldi, Mango, H&M and Asos and her work has been featured in Italian Vogue, Glamour and French Elle. I grew up in a Cuban household where we were always entertaining guests. Throwing dinner parties is our family specialty and cocktails are always flowing. While I’m setting up for a party I like to play oldies, like The Shirelles, but once my friends arrive I love the Pandora station ‘Hip-Hop BBQ’, which is all old school hip hop. Trust me, it’s amazing!
