Since the mid-20th century, a huge wave of space race has started and human has begun all kinds of studies into the sky overhead, especially on the fashion and clothes inspired by the space. In fact, in the 1960s, fashion was define in its most essential meaning as using some latex or other futuristic materials to carry out the exploration of the outer space.

Recently, high fashion and haute couture has welcomed a new comeback of the sci-fi era. As one of the pioneers in this fashion of science fiction, the late genius designer Alexander McQueen joined with fashion weirdo Lady Gaga and Disney animated film “John Carter on the Mars”, inspiring lots of designs in haute couture. Now, let’s look at the fashion show that is inspired by the aliens and science fiction in the visual effects. 

Jane Fonda played an important role of Barbarella in the futuristic movie about space adventure “Space Heroine Barbarella”, which was about the planet of Lythium in 1967. Jane Fonda’s husband Roger Vadim was the director of the whole movie, which was adapted from the comic book of Jean-Claude Forest. 

In the 60s and the 70s, Pierre Cardin was featured in its style inspired by the outer space. In the 1970 spring and summer fashion show of haute couture, the clothes these two models wore showed best the futuristic look in avant-garde style.
