Style / Back to the future

Space Age Fashion



 

This shoot is inspired by the fiftieth anniversary of the lunar landing. Thanks to Western New York vintage collector Martin McGee, my Buffalo State fashion styling class was able to take a journey from Sputnik to Apollo, using vintage fashion, décor, and other items from his private collection. According to McGee, during the early years of space exploration in the fifties and sixties, “science fiction became reality and the entire design movement made imagination a reality. The seismic juncture of modern and postmodern still reverberates today.” McGee helped us teleport back in time, but our future fashion leaders brought us to the present. Additional vintage items were lent by Michael Merisola @coocoou27.
