A determined small business owner in San Francisco is working to rebuild after a devastating theft of over $300,000 worth of specialized costumes and equipment. Dare Fashion, a business that specializes in occasionwear crafted in San Francisco, fell victim to a break-in on Market Street just days before a major event.

For 17 years, Dare Fashion has been known for its Renaissance, Goth, Victorian, Bohemian, and Steampunk styles, all offered in inclusive sizing. Owner Ben Wang discovered the theft on May 1st with his office and storage facility completely ransacked. Despite the setback, Wang and his team attended the upcoming event and are resilient in their determination to move forward.

The break-in was a devastating blow for Wang, who has experienced break-ins at his space multiple times over the years. He is determined to turn the negative experience into a positive one by launching a podcast and YouTube channel to help others navigate difficult situations.

Wang expressed his hope to keep his business in San Francisco despite the challenges it presents. He emphasized the importance of reviewing insurance coverage as he discovered that his policy only covered liability. He has set up a GoFundMe page to help recoup his losses and is focused on rebuilding and moving forward with Dare Fashion’s operations in a new facility in Japantown.
