Meet Mathieu Mirano, The Science Geek Of The Fashion World @ Popular Science via BB.

When someone sends me a petri dish invitation to Fashion Week, I’m in.

That’s how I ended up at the Mathieu Mirano show at the Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week in New York City recently. His fall 2013 collection, which he described to the Wall Street Journal as being “about creating life on the way to another planet when we run out of resources on Earth” was quite otherwordly–a black, nude and metallic gathering with some chiffon, leather, neoprene, galactic sparkle, and a skirt studded with ACTUAL METEORITES. Other natural elements included fox and beaver fur, stingray skin separates (not for trypophobes), and a veiny looking sweater and skirt.

Mirano is a geek designer. “Science is a huge part of my inspiration,” he told me. “My dad got his masters in astrophysics and my uncle in botany… and I’m happy that I have that background.” One of his previous collections used Archaeopteryx fossil motifs and real beetle wings as embellishments.
