Dare to FLY Fashion (DTF) an on-line and pop-up boutique store featuring aviation-inspired apparel not found in off-the-rack locations is launching their new Spring/Summer 2019 collection at Sun’n Fun.
Pilots and aspiring pilots alike with an eye-for-style, will find unique fashion pieces and will fall in love with the stylish and sophisticated product line. Visit their booth, conveniently located indoors in Hangar A (booth A20) and browse their handcrafted garments made here in the USA.
Boutique owner Jen Toplak, an instrument rated pilot, physician and award-winning artist founded the brand in 2015 after creating the Chicks Fly tee-shirt design to raise money for the International Organization of Woman Pilots, the 99s. The design quickly became iconic in the aviation community and inspired her to expand the designs exponentially.
Dare to Fly continues to collaborate with the 99s as well as with Women in Aviation in a philanthropic way and has recently partnered with AOPA to offer a $5000 Advanced Rating Scholarship towards an instrument rating. Dare to Fly has made a special AOPA Limited Edition Fly hat inspired by the notorious and legendary female aviator Amelia Earhart, with the words: “Adventure is worthwhile in itself”, to invite everyone to dare to fly and is dedicating 100% of the proceeds from the sale of the hat to its Advanced Rating Scholarship program. Come to Hangar A, booth A20 to purchase the hat and the 99s T-shirt specifically designed to commemorate the 90th Anniversary of the 99s. DTF will also customize your Fly Hat with your tail number if desired.
Owner Toplak describes her personal style as sophisticated, edgy and fun. She said one of the most important aspects in a garment is material quality and how it can be worn and in how many ways. The majority of pieces featured in her "on-line boutique", daretoflyfashion.com, easily transition from daytime work into evening play. Quality, comfort and versatility are features found in almost every piece.
DTF is hoping to reach out to more women and men and inspire them to Dare to Fly. When you purchase the apparel be prepared to fasten your seatbelts and get ready for take-off! [ home ]
