February Spacesuit Missions 🚀
Updates from our last month.
We wanted to take this time to give everyone a boost to the stars during this challenging time for all of us. Now more than any time we need to allow for dreams and aspirations to flourish. We delayed in sending out the newsletter to respect everyone that has been affected during this hard time. Despite this hard time, we’d like to highlight the beautiful spacesuit moments we had in February and in particular during fashion week in Milan. We hope everyone is staying safe and healthy.
Welcome to a month where we chased major dreams and worked on connecting communities across the world. February was beyond our wildest dreams and we are so excited to share what we have been up to this past month.

🤗 Spacesuit Moments
The small and mighty moments that hold the heart and soul of the brand.
Meet Christina! She woke up a 4 am after a final exam in Rome to catch a train to our workshop on February 22nd in Milan. Christina works for OneWeb working to launch satellites in space to improve accessibility to the internet.
These Cornell Students came from all different parts of Italy during their study abroad program to come to the workshop.
We got invited to see Luisa Beccaria’s show in Milan. Luisa Beccaria makes luxury womenswear gowns and featured an interactive show where the audience was empowered to rock the runway.
Got to teach and travel with Caley! Caley is the brightest person and one of the biggest reasons why spacesuit continues to blast off. So thankful for her and every mission she has been a part of.
We spotted Jacob’s embroidery on his backpack that he made from the embroidery workshop. Check out those constellations.
Spacesuit was caught working out at Switch Playground in NYC.
Major missions we focused on.
Make Fashion Week Inclusive
Fashion Week can be one of the most exclusive events that take place around the world. Exclusive invites and luxurious locations limit how people can interact with fashion and people within the network. We wanted to change that.
How we did this:
Created workshops that teach people new skills related to fashion design
Shared more about the experience through social media
Dream big and teach those around you to do the same
Everything around this past month has been consumed by an active chase of dreams. When returning from Milan Fashion Week, Spacesuit held a brand new workshop that taught people how to dream big and chase after their own mission. The conversations held and dreams written were so special and inclusive to a room full of different talents and skills.

Something wild let’s be real
February was one of the craziest months to blast off and do it with so many new people around the world. Thank you from the bottom of my heart for joining the mission and continuing to spread it in your everyday life.
