Queue Miley Cyrus music, grab the sunscreen, roll the windows down, we’re heading on a girl’s trip. We had the best time shooting our brand-new Malibu Collection with a very talented all-female cast and crew this past October. Through laughs, sunburns, and a fabulous meal, we really got to know one another well in the span of just a few hours. In the spirit of International Women’s Day, lets meet this girl boss team and see what they had to say about the Malibu shoot!
