The Shared Future of Fashion And Aerospace

FAAR: driving the future of living, lifestyle and well-being, on earth and in space
FAAR’s mission is to promote the participation of all sectors and points of view in the development of the space industry, in order to advance the best possible quality of life, lifestyle and well-being of humans on earth and in space.
This event is part of a series, throughout the US and internationally.
Fashion and Aerospace have been partners since the first Space Age. Their historical achievements have paved the way for a robust textile industry that serves both our Space endeavors and our life on earth. An introductory presentation by FAAR founder, Lee Anderson, will give an overview of that shared history, and some of the most exciting new and upcoming developments.
The panel, following the presentation, will demonstrate these overlaps through a deep dive into the interdisciplinary interactions behind their work, discussing technology in textiles and manufacturing, and the process of creating and problem solving with new tools and knowledge now accessible.
