Presenting…. Space fashion!
As the style gradually increased in means of popularity, the amount of space-themed fashion designers increased as well. Pierre Cardin, known for his avant-garde fashion and production of cut-out dresses, was fascinated by the idea of space fashion. Using vinyl, silver fabrics, and large zips, a new collection was born.
'The clothes that I prefer are those I invent for a life that doesn't exist yet - the world of tomorrow.'
-- Pierre Cardin Past, Present, Future, 1990.
Marko Mitanovski, a Serbian designer who creates various outfits for Lady Gaga, is known for bizarre outfits such as Maleficent-like gowns, while heightening the hair in the form of deer antlers to complete the look.
In today’s fashion, Steven B. Wheeler has created a beautiful and convenient jacket, called the Space Jacket. It serves as a tribute to NASA for being pure heroes. It’s highly comfortable, and not to mention very stylish.
