Brenda Schoenfeld was born surrounded by a dynasty of legendary artisans in Taxco, Mexico. Her uncles, known as “Los Castillo’s” since 1946, were famous master silversmiths. While her grandmother, fashion designer, Tachi Castillo, provided traveling European aristocracy and sophisticated fashion conscious American women with extravagant couture wardrobes.
Brenda’s formative years were an amalgamation of artists, materials, design, form, detail, and craftsmanship. A combination which continues to significantly influence her expressive styles as a designer still today.
