The Underpinnings Museum - no people in space without our underpinnings, who knew! It was the craftsmanship of lingerie seamstresses and company Playtex who built the first space suits. Didn't know that? Me neither - until I watched the video pitch for the super awesome kickstarter that started today: The Underpinnings Museum.
Their kickstarter describes it like this:
As frivolous as it may seem on the surface, underwear plays a pretty important role in people's lives. Documentation of lingerie in the larger world of fashion isn't as extensive as other areas, and it is important to document these beautiful objects for the future. These delicate garments are a finite resource that cannot last forever: in many instances, century old silk is already fragile and beginning to shatter. The online museum offers a perfect platform to record these items before they succumb to the ravages of time."
