Name A Star Live will launch the first ever fashion line to fly in space! We’ve partnered with the eco-fashion brand Teeki in an effort to help promote awareness of a more sustainable future and lifestyle for humanity. Along with our customers’ star names, we will launch the material from which eight pairs of special edition yoga pants will be made for the new Teeki line, “The Age of Aquarius.” The launch, known as The Centennial Flight, is scheduled for liftoff June 21, 2013 out of Spaceport America, New Mexico.
This “Earth Rise Service” mission will fly Teeki’s payload in UP Aerospace’s SpaceLoft™ XL SL-7 launch vehicle. After flying in the zero gravity environment of space, the spacecraft carrying the payload will safely return to Earth via parachute. Once recovered it will be retrieved and returned to Teeki, which will then use the material in manufacturing.
Teeki has joined us in supporting the exploration of outer space “because ultimately it is about a journey of discovery, sustainability, and making our Planet (our only precious habitat) a better and healthier place to live,” said Teeki owner/designer, Lindsay Hemric.
The replicas of these special edition yoga pants made their debut at the historic Vibiana Cathedral in downtown Los Angeles on Thursday April 25th as part of the UPLIFT Yoga Bash, held by the non-profit organization Keep Friendship Alive to benefit middle school children. This exciting new clothing line was worn by about half of the approximately 700 people who attended the event, including aerial dancers and yoga instructors. In addition, Name A Star Live will launch personal messages and ‘aspirations’ collected by Teeki, along with Teeki’s material. These messages were collected, free of charge, from those in attendance at the Yoga Bash. Members of the public may submit message via Teeki’s website.
