Model, mom and manager Serena Adsit brings the '90s back in the most modern way
Authentic, useful, and timeless, the season’s masterpieces – an oversized pullover to snuggle into, the coat to wear over anything, the 24/7 black number, the handsome jacket – are for real women with real lives. Like Serena Adsit here. One of the top local models in the ’90s, she still models, is a mother of a six-year-old boy (Evan is his name), and runs model agency Mint Management.
