Spacesuit Design Challenge 2020

We are excited to announce Spacesuit Design Challenge: What Would Yuri Wear?

This year’s Fashion Show is during Yuri’s Day, a celebration of space past, present, and future inspired by Yuri Gagarin, the first person in space! As tribute to Yuri and the beginning of space travel, we are asking all designers to take inspiration from retro spacesuit design, as well as current spacesuit technology.

The Top 15 Spacesuit designs will be showcased in a Fashion Show at The Museum of Flight during a celebration of Yuri Gagarin on Saturday, April 11, 2020. A panel of judges will decide the top three designs, one for each age category. The three winning Spacesuits will be displayed in the Museum’s Alaska Airlines Aerospace Education Center.
