Ashley Cook and Danielle Dankner are owners and designers of the private label, ash&dans, a line of signature scarves worn by celebrities around the world.
After graduating from Washington University in St. Louis in 2008, the roommates moved to New York City to create an innovative accessories line. When Ash, the color-loving Coloradan, and Dans, the nothing-but-black-wearing New Yorker, married their distinct styles and personalities, ash&dans was born, the perfect blend of classic and cool.
When Ash was a little girl her mom would hide items of clothing that she did not want cut apart since Ash would sew every t-shirt, sweater, pants, anything she could get her hands on, into a revamped edition.
The lightweight rayon jersey blend has the feel and charm of a vintage tee. ash&dans adheres to their motto "keep it simple," focusing on subtle detail, understated trends, and casual comfort.
