COUTURE IN ORBIT

from cosmic space to haute couture

The European Space Agency (ESA) asked us to create a collection of garments with innovative materials and technologies coming from the space research that have been presented with a fashion show organized by ESA at the London Science Museum on May 25th 2016 and at the European Researchers Night in the Italian venue ESA/ESRIN on October 30th 2016.

The project COUTURE IN ORBIT is the first important step together with the Politecnico di Milano and others 4 Design Schools in Europe to communicate to a huge public the role of ESA in developing scientific and technological innovation able to inspire people, as this example through the fashion language that celebrates space exploration and research exploitation and their impact in many fields of our life.
