What is a flying dress?

Inspired by the famous Greek Santorini Flying Dresses, I have worked with fashion designers and seamstress to create 24-30 foot wide skirts/dresses made from REAL parachute material. As a Destin Headshots photographer in 30A, Florida, I love capturing these dresses on the beaches at sunrise or sunset for Women in Business.
