In a world dominated by technology, fashion no longer means just the clothes and accessories we wear, but experimentation, technology and research, a system that welcomes new functions and transversal meanings. Intelligent fabrics that can tell when we are sweating and can regulate the breathability of clothes, accessories that holds our biometric data and clothes that monitor our vitals. Astronauts, for instance, need to wear protective clothing to defend against drastic changes in the ambient temperature when they walk out of the spacecraft.
Sheyene Gerardi´s Signature Collection brings together a combination of fashion and technology with interaction design, featuring smart thermostat fiber originates from the concept of NASA’s design and development for landing on the moon.

Smart Garment (SG) plays an important role in health and medical applications, it can help measure things like heart rate, blood-oxygen levels, and environmental conditions, this has a huge for gathering insights on overall fitness, biometrics, and environmental impacts on our health. Advances in biodegradable, environmentally friendly textiles, also offer new ways to provide anti-inflammatory, antibacterial, hydrating and detoxifying benefits to athletes, patients, and others.
Currently, human space exploration is undergoing a transition into its next phase, which will consist of commercial space exploration as well as NASA-led efforts. As space tourism grows and more people travel to space, new space suits will be required to meet the needs of this type of traveler.
As NASA structures missions to asteroids, the Moon, or Mars, advanced space suits will be required to accommodate travel to these environments. These two categories of suits are dramatically different, because a commercial suit is used primarily for emergency protection during launch and landing, whereas the kind used in spacewalks must meet much more stringent protection standards and performance needs.
It takes hundreds of incredibly skilled people to design and manufacture space suits, as well as decades of testing components and assemblies of a wide range of designs and materials to create a database of knowledge about what will and won’t work as the technology evolves.
The spacesuit not only protects the astronaut but also collects data through integrated, transparent sensors embedded in the membrane. These sensors are capable of visually displaying environmental and membrane structural information, providing visual feedback to the wearer about the surroundings.
