Born in Massachusetts, Simone Santos is a beautiful fashion designer and samba dancer who loves brazilian culture. Although her family is from Brazil and she is the only family member born in the US, she says her blood and heart are Brazilian.
Simone dances for the LA Samba Dancers and she started her own business, creating a clothing line called “Mata Gal” as a designer and stylist. “I chose to dance because it’s one of my biggest passions and it’s maybe the funnest jobs ever! And I began designing because I love to create and I love to express myself through my clothing. And even more than that I love to make clothes that help women to feel confident, sexy and at their very best”, she says.
To stay in shape she dances but also workout and plays volleyball at the beach. She dances everyday, 4 days of week or more just for work. “All other times I’m dancing cause I love it, whether out with my friends or while cooking food. Not only does if help my body stay fit and balanced, it helps my mind body and would stay balanced”.
