                                     The Dapper D Story

I was recently asked, what made you go into fashion after having a law enforcement career? Yes, I know the two don't really go together. My background is in law enforcement, but I have a passion for fashion. Since having my first job at 16 and buying my own clothes, I only shopped in the men's department. I never felt comfortable in dresses or feminine blouses etc. I always felt awkward and my confidence was lacking to say the least. Wearing men's style clothes gave me the confidence I needed to be myself and walk with my head held high.

Wearing a uniform as a police officer taught me to take pride in looking "sharp". My uniform had to be dry cleaned and pressed, boots cleaned and the leather shined. I took that lesson into my personal appearance as well. And what I learned is that it felt GOOD!

So years later, and still shopping in the men's department, I've decided that it was time to start a clothing line for women like me. I want to empower other women to be themselves and wear what makes THEM comfortable. Be Brave. Be Authentic. Be You. Let's be the #butchfashionstas that we deserve to be! It shouldn't be only for the "Sex and The City" types. Being a fashionista doesn't just mean wearing high heels, skirts and the latest trend. I feel a fashionista is someone who is confident in their own style and owns it!

From Law Enforcement to Fashion. Very different paths, but somehow connected. This is why I created Dapper D Fashions, a Men's Style Clothing Line for Women, and for the Dapper Tomboy in each of us. Be Brave. Be Authentic. Be you.

YOUR KICKSTARTER TEAM:

 Rasha Pecoraro - V.P. Of Dapper D

Has a nice ring to it, don't you  think? My wife has been my biggest  supporter from day 1. Not only is she helping me build the business but, she is a wonderful mommy to our 2 year old daughter!

Vanna Pecoraro - Founder

That's me! I am extremely grateful for all our family and friends who have shown so much love and support to make my dream come true! 

Kina Williams -  Creative Director

We have known Kina for several years and we are grateful for all her talent and hard work. Her creative skills are insane! She understood the vision and was on board from the beginning. She has been capturing our special moments since before our daughter was born. Love working with Kina!

Leilani Pecoraro - "The Boss"

Our 2 year old daughter. Spunky, entertaining, active, girly, and a tomboy.  She brings us so much joy! Ok, so she's too young to work in the family business, but she is a major reason why we're working so hard to make Dapper D a reality. We want to teach her the value of hard work and to always go after your dreams!

Risks and challenges

We've spent the last year researching our manufacturing sources to find the best materials and selecting the most experienced partners. We are in constant communication with them and they understand our vision and needs. We know that they are committed to quality, reliability and on time production.

With that said like everything else on Kickstarter, Dapper D is a work in progress. We deeply believe in transparency and communication. Our backers will be the first to know about any unplanned hurdles or delays. We will post updates and welcome you to get in touch directly at info@DapperDFashions.com
