BIO

 

About Allyson Simone  a child I loved to draw and write. This interest led me to studying art and fashion in college. After graduation I studied in Europe specializing in textiles. In 1999 Allyson Simone Brides was established, with stores in San Diego, showrooms in New York and Los Angeles.  

images  Extra Notes, Allyson Simone Brides have been featured in over 400 bridal publications, social media and news media. I have retired from the design community, and no longer design gowns. To keep abreast of the textile and fashion trends I use travel to New York and Europe to survey the latest in textiles. A graduate in fashion design and merchandising, I continue my education at the Advertising Arts College in Graphic Design and Publishing specializing in marketing. I then traveled to Europe where I worked with textile manufactures specializing in silks.  I market myself and found myself  in published magazines within the first 4 months.  From there I meet Gene Nocon in 1999 my mentor and great friend who gave Allyson Simone BRIDES the logo and established me in the world of bridal fashion designers.  Gene Nocon is a world renown photographer in the American and European arena, his clients to name a few Royal family, Paul McCarthy and many more.  After my husband passed away in 2006, I continue to work and went on to study at USD paralegal program specializing in Corporate law, this was a great learning experience.  I still continue to mentor fashion students when needed and attend meetings at the Palomar College Fashion Department where I am an alumni.  

Inspiration of life is continuing education and to keep dreaming the impossible even when we fall down, Allyson Simone
