The Zero-G Bride: The Next New One-Upmanship

Japanese fashion designer Eri Matsui is working to enable the first "astro bride" dress in an effort sponsored by the Japan Aerospace Exploration Agency. The cosmic design catwalk Hyper Space Couture Design Contest is underway with the first design winners expected this summer.

"As there has never been anyone who has actually worn a dress in zero gravity, the challenge was in having to hypothesise the situation," Matsui recently told British publication the Guardian. The new space tourism industry will certainly have such a wedding blast before the decade is out and Mastsui will be ready having tested several designs in Zero-G parabolic flights to ensure modesty is kept without the aid of gravity. There will be a designer microgravity wear line in 2007.
