Daughters of Simone is a romantic non-traditional bridal gown company based out of , and made in, San Francisco, California. Fused by what inspires us, along side the fashion muses of years gone by, we aim to make each gown their own… Something we would want to wear, or maybe that others would want to wear also. We love that all of our gowns are unique, with an original story that our brides breathe new life into. Because we see our girl as an individual, this is not just any other bride getting married and the dress must represent that.
The name Daughters Of Simone was inspired by the philosopher Simone de Beauvoir. She was a rebel of her time who created a life solely around what she stood for when being your own woman made you a radical. We’d like to think that our brides are just this way. Uniquely themselves, and unafraid to challenge the status quo to create the life they want. Here, there’s a sense that because of courageous women like Simone, marriage has evolved into a really beautiful thing between two people… Something completely about celebrating love, and spending a lifetime of adventure together. Daughters Of Simone aims to capture this spirit.
“Romance and antique lace, blossom trees and billowy sleeves…this is what young love should feel like.”

About the Designer: Brit Castanos launched Daughters Of Simone after sensing that there was a lack of variety for brides who longed a gown that represented them. What started with a handful of reconstructed vintage gowns, curated from the ’60s and ’70s, has since blossomed into her first and second collection of lacy and bohemian wedding gowns. Brit is inspired by her mother’s very own shoulder baring wedding gown, her globetrotting travels to Bali and Vietnam, and the women who have inspired her to keep dreaming.
