ESA and the Science Museum in London are working with five leading fashion schools around Europe to design clothes for the space age with their ‘Couture in Orbit’ project. Between 2014 and 2016, five ESA astronauts from the UK, France, Italy, Denmark and Germany are visiting the International Space Station. To mark the missions, European fashion schools from the astronauts’ home countries are designing and developing clothes that are both desirable and practical, while incorporating high-tech innovations. The participating schools are Fashion Design Akademiet in Denmark, Ravensbourne in the UK, the Politecnico di Milano in Italy and ESMOD in France and Germany. Each is assigned a theme for its clothing, ranging from technology, environment and innovation to health and nutrition, and has to consider the applications of their designs in daily life. ESA provides space-certified textiles for the students to use in the project, which is supported by the companies Bionic Yarn and Sympatex.

Professor Annalisa Dominoni of their Design department gives an overview of the school’s role in the event. Working with Couture in Orbit was a great challenge for us because we explored fashion in the age of technology to understand better how we can be more conscious of the transformation that technology brings. Space innovations will have a strong influence on how people behave and perform in the future.
