Daughters of Simone
Posted: Jan 19 2018
With the launch of their new collection, Dawn of a New Age, Forever Soles caught up with Brittany and Ashley from Daughters of Simone to see what keeps them inspired at work and what keeps them motivated whilst creating masterpieces.
I'd describe the style as...
Brit: California tomboy meets Brooklyn -dare I say- hipster?
Ash: Paris Jackson flowerchild meets disco Diana Ross
I work best when I'm surrounded by....
Brit: Campfire & Simon and Garfunkel
Ash: San Francisco & a hot mocca
5 things you'll always find on my desk
Brit: Ear buds & to-do lists
Ash: Flowers & "Google Docs"
Lately, I find inspiration in...
Brit: 80s beading, women's resilience, androgynous fashion
Ash: Old movies, my moms paintings, trims & notions
Best tip for overcoming procrastination, or a creative block...
Brit: Switch up your work place, whether it be your local library, coffee shop, or park. If you have a "hot spot" use it. A change of scenery and a little solitude can really re-motivate you.
Ash: Find a good playlist and even better headphones, watch yourself get sucked in.
I'm currently working on...
Brit: Contemplating whether DOS will participate in London Bridal Week this year for the first time......
Ash: Getting the 2018 collection into our stores!
Favourite quote that inspires you...
Brit: "Right where you are, that's where the light is" - 'Fanyi Water' Jade Castrinos
Ash: "I want to stay as close to the edge as I can without going over. Out on the edge you see all kinds of things you
can't see from the center." Vonnegut
