Zero-Gee Fashion Competition
Lifestyles of the rich and weightless
by Carol Pinchefsky
The New York Times has written an article about space fashion (registration required). In brief, the Japanese Aerospace Exploration Agency (JAXA) and Rocketplane Ltd. are sponsoring a zero-gravity fashion competition "for clothes that look good in zero gravity. The best designs will appear in a fashion show in Tokyo this fall."

Why? Because when you go to space, you want to go in style.

The official website for the Hyper Space Couture Design Contest, www.space-fashion.com, is in Japanese, with English translations expected soon.
