Daughters of Simone is the quintessential collection of non-traditional wedding gowns for all boho brides, who always want to feel dreamy and effortless on their day.
Finally, the cool fall air is settling in and we are breaking the sweaters out of our closets. We are suckers for fall weddings and we know that finding that one perfect and unique wedding dress for the cooler temperatures can be a bit tricky! As we know there are some brides for whom the idea of a highly structured traditional wedding dress is the ambivalence to everything that their personal and bridal style emblematizes. We completely understand that. Not every bride needs to want to have an internal corset and a cumbersome hoop as not all weddings happen in churches or hotels, and not all brides want to look like a Disney Princess.
For all those free-spirited and romantically inclined brides who are on the lookout for a best designer wedding dress that speaks to their soul, Daughters of Simone has always been a name that is known to portray the indefatigable and remarkable uniqueness of brides on their wedding day and will also offer you some help when choosing an incredible boho bridal dress!
Whether the inspiration was from Kate Moss and her legions of woodlands nymphs led you down a path of boho bridal dress, or the idea of having a charming outdoor wedding under the starry city escape, or maybe just the thought of you dancing barefoot all night with your sweetheart, we are delighted that you are looking for something more sartorially outlandish. The Daughters of Simone has visions of you skipping through meadows, but they are probably getting a bit carried away now…
“Romance and Antique Lace, Blossom trees, and Billowy Sleeves… this is what young love should feel like.”- Daughters of Simone
A bohemian non-traditional bridal gown company established in the Big Apple of America, New York. Daughters of Simone is an establishment created by two amazingly inspired and creative sisters- Ashley and Brittany! Inspired by fashion muses of years gone by, including their mother’s very own 1970s shoulder-baring wedding gown, sister duo, Ashley and Brittney (the designers) designed their first collection of wedding gowns for the soul-bearing and strong-willed brides of the world who remind them to keep charging forward! Making a boho vibe to flawlessly match with today’s bride, this amazing sister duo has been marking their marks on the wedding world for years!
The name- Daughters of Simone was inspired by Simone de Beauvoir, the French writer, and philosopher. A visionary, and a strong and courageous woman who was independent and challenged that status quo for women at a time when a woman's future was predetermined. The sister duo firmly believed that Simone de Beauvoir’s out of the box ideas are creatively represented in their unique wedding gowns. This famous French writer and philosopher is known for her speaking up for women at the time when women were not expected to have a voice of their own! Simone is still the backbone of Daughters of Simone and the brand effortlessly fuses her lively spirit into everything they do!
The business was initially started with a quest through frugality stores for vintage wedding dresses which were then touched up (tweaking the gowns here and there to give them a new life and more modern appeal) and sold to Etsy. With the Etsy shop a smashing hit (no surprise there considering the brand’s eye for detail and taste in vintage), Brittany and Ashley opened a showroom for Daughters of Simone, a thriving business with an eclectic edge in their San Francisco apartment.
Daughters of Simone welcomes strong and courageous women, who know how to leave their everlasting impression on the people in any celebration. Ash and Brit design for women who have the nerve to feel like themselves on their wedding day, while overlooking what may be considered the tradition. They find this idea extremely romantic.
In 2019, Ashley and Brittney launched their Bridal Collection called Day Dream, which includes the exclusive ‘Ash’ gown (being Ash’s wedding gown). After which they spread their wings and launched their two collaborations, the bridesmaids’ line with Leave her Wilder and the jewelry collab with A.B. Ellie. They also opened up an office in their hometown of Fresno, California, where brides are able to go and try on exquisite dresses for their wedding day. Lately, they have also expanded into wholesale, stocked in stores like Anthropologie’s BHLDN and boutique across the globe (quite literally!) and their label has grown into 6 beautiful collections!
Romantic. Confident. Free Spirit are the three words that perfectly describe the Daughters of Simone.
Talking about their inspiration, Ashley and Brittney’s designs spoke briefly to their carefree childhood, where colorful paint splatters were encouraged by their beautiful and abstract artist mother and adorable carpenter daddy, while they both dotted the floors of their home. A pinch of rebelliousness, a never-give-up theology, and lawless creativity was much the recipe of their formative years. Out of which Ashley and Brittney’s eye for the unorthodox sprung!
The sister’s duo began to design their own collection of wedding dresses, still vintage-inspired but with their own touch of incredible creativity from start to finish. After gaining fame and fan-following amongst the brides, the sisters were successful in breaking down the perception that bohemian was not a style of weddings, and henceforth, Ashley and Brittney moved to New York, the city of dreams to make their last and longing dream into a beautiful reality. The sisters participated in New York Bridal Week, and grew their presence on the East Coast and eventually, abroad! They have an exclusive showroom in New York where they hold their full collection!
