Sympatex Technologies, market leader of high-tech functional clothing, is collaborating with the European Space Agency (ESA) and European fashion schools for a new international project - ‘Couture in Orbit’. While the fashion schools have been tasked to find inspiration in space technologies and missions to explore the future of fashion, the functional textiles specialist will provide students with innovative materials. The results of the project would be presented in London on May 25, 2016.

“We have set them the task of developing everyday fashion inspired by Alexander Gerst’s ‘Blue Dot’ mission. At the same time, the topics of earth observation and climate change must also play a role. We think that the environmentally-friendly functional textiles from Sympatex are particularly appropriate to the theme of our project and are very pleased that we have managed to get Sympatex on board as a materials sponsor,” explained Rosita Suenson, ESA project coordinator.

The aim of ‘Couture in Orbit’ is to celebrate the inspirational aspect of space exploration. In addition to ESMOD Berlin, the other fashion schools taking part in the project are ESMOD Paris, the Fashion Design Akademiet Copenhagen, the Politecnico Milan and the Department of Fashion at Ravensbourne in London. A jury of experts will select several designs from each school. (NA)
