ESA’s Couture in Orbit project to look at the future of fashion using space materials and technology will come to a close with a fashion show at London’s Science Museum on 25 May. This image was taken by Annalisa Dominoni during a fashion shoot at the “Immagine” lab with her students at the Design school of the Politecnico di Milano in Italy.
Five leading fashion schools around Europe took part in Couture in Orbit, each assigned a theme, an ESA astronaut and technical and fabric sponsors.
The Milan students looked at astronaut postures and movements while in space to imagine practical fashion of the future that allows for the new gestures and movement adopted by space tourists and astronauts.
