About Daughters of Simone

DAUGHTERS OF SIMONE STARTED OUT OF A YEARNING TO DO SOMETHING DIFFERENT IN THIS BIG WIDE WORLD OF WEDDING DRESSES.  THE NAME WAS INSPIRED BY THE PHILOSOPHER ‘SIMONE DE BEAUVOIR’,  A WOMAN WHO DID HER OWN THING, TOOK NAMES, AND ALWAYS LEFT A MARK DURING A TIME WHEN THAT JUST WASN’T COOL FOR WOMEN TO DO. SHE IS THE HEART & SOUL OF DOS AND THE LABEL STRIVES TO SPRINKLE HER IN EVERYTHING THEY DO.

MEET THE SISTERS BEHIND THE LABEL, ASHLEY AND BRITTANY CASTANOS. RAISED BY A CARPENTER FATHER, AND AN ABSTRACT ARTIST MOTHER, THEIR CHILDHOOD WAS ANYTHING BUT ORDINARY. A TYPICAL CHILDHOOD ACTIVITY OF THEIRS CONSISTED OF THROWING ON TRASH BAG SMOCKS, SETTING UP A CANVAS IN THE BACKYARD, AND SPLATTERING COLORFUL PAINT WILDLY AROUND UNTIL A “MASTERPIECE” EMERGED. INDEPENDENCE, SELF-DETERMINATION AND CREATIVITY WERE CORNERSTONES OF THEIR FORMATIVE YEARS. AND, OUT OF WHICH, THEIR EYE FOR THE UNORTHODOX NEVER FALTERED.
