Abstract: Fashion in space is a new phenomenon that has just come about as a result of the start of commercial human space flight. Space wear of government astronauts has been strictly practical based on safety and reliability even space casual wear on board has been just simple catalog ones, but now is the very age of space tourism. The general public can go to space to have an once-in-a-lifetime space experience. Naturally, these people will want to wear their “Sunday Best†or their favorite or unique designer garment that both enhances the space flight experience and expresses their personal enthusiasm. Fashion charms the general public and could make a huge market in addition to the original space market. Space development could become more fun using fashion power, so that popularization and commercialization of space will catch fire and be driven to greater success and mainstream awareness and enthusiasm.
