Communist leaders of the former Soviet Union had some wacky plans that trickled into all spheres of life – including fashion [2]. So New York based artists Joanna Malinowka and Christian Tomaszewski [3] from Poland designed a giant inflatable Russian space suit modeled after the garment worn by the first woman in space, Valentina Tershkova, and are currently holding a fashion show in its belly – right now – at the Zacheta Gallery [4] in Warsaw, Poland.
