40th Anniversary of the Moon Landing

Happy 40th anniversary of the first man on the moon. The anniversary was actually yesterday, but we are going to celebrate today with some incredible space-age fashion that this very event inspired. Space themes are beginning to reemerge in fashion today and it is a far-out opportunity to take a minute and see the fashion that was created during the race for space.
