Japanese space agency JAXA and Rocketplane Ltd, a space tourism company in Okalahoma, are sponsoring a space fashion contest for clothes that look good in zero gravity. The winners' designs can be worn on Rocketplane flights taking passengers to the edge of space for a mere $250,000 for 15 minutes.

With numerous sci-fi comics and films, the imagery of space continues to inspire numerous brands to produce their interpretation of futuristic clothes. As consumers look into the future, designers look with them as a way of evolving and expanding their creative capabilities.
