The History and Future of Fashion in Space


This presentation will cover the history of the connections between the fashion and aerospace industries, tracking the evolution up to today and setting up a proposed framework for their continued collaboration. I will discuss current technology, design examples, and systems that are of shared interest to both industries, and why. I identify a new segment of the fashion industry, that acts as a bridge with technology and science. The presentation concludes with a perspective on why it is critical that this fashion community be a part of the larger scientific conversation.
