Givenchy by Alexander McQueen, Fall Winter 1999 Ready-to-Wear. Photographed by Thierry Orban. Sarah Burton: ‘I remember one collection - the prêt-à-porter autumn/winter 1999-2000 collection - which involved a model in a Perspex robotic body. The guy who made the robot told us ten minutes before the model walked out, “If she sweats in the suit, she’s going to electrocute herself. So tell her not to sweat”.
Japanese artist Mihoko Ogaki has combined the night sky with the body in these sculptures constructed from plastic and embedded with LEDs. The light shines out through thousands of tiny holes and illuminates the walls surrounding the sculpture but when they are placed in bright room, the bodies appear to be suffering and dying.

|| Dog Space Suit Because dogs and humans are so closely related? Or maybe because they can speak if they eat alphabet soup (aka Martha speaks) The space program is/was a waste of money. Also we never made it to the moon :-)
