Katie Simone Nehra is equal parts designer and actress. She has appeared in numerous stage productions in New York and several films in Hollywood, and recently finished writing her first screenplay. In 2006, Nehra took on fashion and launched Simone, a collection of women's clothing inspired by designs she dreams of but cannot find. Originally, the collection featured only dresses, where each style was named after a friend. Now the line encompasses ultra-femme tops, jackets, and blouses fit the girl about town.
