       -- Conclusion: designing post-gravity fashion. 
520    "Today, we are living in the New Space Age, where mass 
       commercial space travel is almost within our grasp. This 
       otherworldly possibility has opened up new cultural images
       of space, both real and fictional, and has caused fashion 
       design and spacesuit engineering to intersect in new, 
       exciting ways. Spacewear traverses this uncharted 
       territory by exploring the changing imagination of space 
       in fashion--and fashion in space--from the first Space Age
       to the 21st century. Exploring how space travel has 
       stylistically and technologically framed fashion design on
       earth and how we need to revisit established design 
       practices for the weightless environment. Spacewear 
       connects the catwalk and the space station. This book 
       draws together speculative fantasies in sci-fi films such 
       as Star Trek and 2001: A Space Odyssey, with the 
       engineered spacesuits Biosuit and the NASA Z-2 and with 
       catwalk interpretations by the likes of Alexander McQueen,
       Hussein Chalayan, André Courréges, and Iris van Herpen. 
       While the development of commercial space agencies has led
       to new concerns for style in garments for outer space that
       re-think fundamental design principles such as drape, high
       fashion has experimented with new possibilities for 
       weightlessness that extend far beyond the 1960s vision of 
       Space Age metallic fabrics and helmet-style headwear. 
       Brownie takes the reader on a fascinating journey from 
       fantasy to function and to form, deepening our 
       understanding of this new category of fashion that is 
       prompting new approaches to garment design and 
       construction both on Earth and in outer space."--
