Here’s What’s Happening Now

Did you know that Amelia Earhart started one of the first celebrity clothing lines? 

Almost 100 years before influencer endorsements became ingrained in our culture, Earhart designed Amelia Earhart Fashions. Leveraging her star status as the first woman to fly solo across the Atlantic, she took an entrepreneurial approach to help fund future flights. 

The Amelia Earhart Fashions line was made with the women who would wear the designs in mind — active, ambitious trailblazers making a name for themselves in communities across the country. Women who needed polished and practical wardrobes. 

Featuring 25 outfits that debuted at @macys in New York, Earhart’s collection prioritized washable, wrinkle-free fabrics and incorporated nods to aviation. Parachute cords for belts and wing bolts for buttons were both included. 

Earhart talked about Amelia Earhart Fashions in a New York World Telegram article published Dec. 29, 1933. “I have always believed that clothes are terribly important in every woman’s life. And I also believe that there is much of beauty in aviation — color and line that is exclusive to the air, which I have attempted to express in sports clothes.”
