James Webb Space Telescope’s ‘First Deep Field’ image has been turned into a dress

How about wearing a piece of the universe?

On July 11, 2022, the clearest and most detailed image of the distant universe ever taken by NASA’s James Webb Space Telescope (JWST) was unveiled.

The image, known as Webb’s First Deep Field, shows the oldest galaxies ever observed. Now this groundbreaking image can be worn like a fashion brand has turned it into a dress, according to Space.com.

Svaha combined fashion and science

Science has married fashion in a project by fashion brand Svaha. The brand has launched a new JWST-themed collection, which includes a dress, top and cardigan, according to WION News.

Now you can wear a tiny speck of the universe in mesmerizing detail with the NASA imagery fully covered cotton dress.

According to Svaha, the JWST dress has become in high demand among Svaha customers.

“As soon as NASA released the photo, our social media was flooded with requests from our customers to capture the image on a dress,” Svaha founder and CEO Jaya Iyer said in a statement.

Iyer said the image is just so beautiful that they feel they had to make a dress out of it. Thus, the brand has come up with beautiful designs that people can wear.

According to NASA’s Webb vs Hubble comparison page, the previous JWST pioneer, the Hubble Space Telescope, “had a more limited spectrum of infrared wavelengths,” according to Space.com.

In December 2021, an instrument called the Near Infrared Camera (NIRCam) was launched aboard the JWST.

Together with NIRCam’s infrared sensors, this allowed the telescope to see farther into space than previously launched instruments.

It took a long time for the light that reached the telescope to cross the solar system. Thus, the pattern displayed on the dress is a representation of the universe when it was less than a billion years old.

How much does the JWST dress cost?

JWST Webb’s first Deep Field image was digitally printed onto the fabric of the dress to replicate the crisp details and true proportions exactly.

The fabric is made of 95% cotton and 5% lycra. The dress has short sleeves and a flared knee-length skirt. For more practicality, it has pockets sewn at the waist.

The JSWT image covers the entire dress. Mirrored near the waist, the image of the universe is duplicated on both the top and skirt section.

According to Iyer, she originally created the Svaha brand to combine fashion and STEAM (science, technology, engineering, art and math). One of its goals is to remove the concept that people have to choose between women’s clothing and science themes.

You can get each of the items from Webb’s First Deep Field clothing collection in sizes XS to 5XL. You can pre-order it on the Svaha USA website.

The dress sells for $79.99. The cheaper top and cardigan are available for $44.99 each. The dress, top and cardigan will ship to customers in late September 2022.
