The space-inspired runway show saw designs as future flirting as a jumpsuit that converts human sweat into drinking water.

On our minds is ‘Couture in Orbit’, the space-inspired runway show at London’s Science Museum that took place the other week in collaboration with European Space Agency. The showcase/slash/competition invited fashion students from five European schools to create looks inspired by space flight and the agency’s most recent missions to the International Space Station in particular. The show saw designs as future flirting as a jumpsuit that converts human sweat into drinking water; a dress with climate-controlled pouches for food storage; and garments studded with heating units. Created with the help of high-tech space-certified textiles, the designs introduced new ways of merging purposeful technology with couture. Watch footage from the show here.
