Naoko Yamazaki knows you have to look good at work even if your work is in outer space. Japanese fashion designer Tae Ashida has created a designer suit for the female astronaut to wear during her stay on the International Space Station. “As a female designer, I chose a design and colour with a sense of grace … so that she can feel at ease as she carries out a tough mission in a male-dominated, bleak atmosphere. It’s like a dream come true to see my clothes worn in space,” said Ashida. “I’m looking forward to seeing her wear my design.”
