Save the date for boston: November 2, 2017

An organization for the advancement of space-scalable, commercial businesses that will drive the future of living, lifestyle and wellbeing in space

FAAR’s mission is to inspire, advance and support the development of commercial, human-centric convergences, both terrestrial and space-scalable, by identifying shared interests and facilitating synchronization between industries. 

Our focus is on the wellbeing of humans in space, to ensure that we survive and thrive in the space environment.

We aim to facilitate the development of new realities that improve the quality of life on earth and in space, as humans expand to space-based dwelling. Only by developing our future in space with all aspects of humanity in mind can we truly set ourselves up not only to go, but to thrive, in a new space-based environment. Only through collaboration can we find solutions that meaningfully advance the way we live, and our experience in the world, and wider universe.

The inherent contradictions of Fashion and Aerospace are many, and meaningful. Our focus is not on Fashion or on Aerospace as the industries exist today, but on the incredible possibilities of what could be if these industries begin to work together, creating a new paradigm

Defining Principles


Defining Principles


Defining Principles

We are interested in long-term investment and long-term gain within the FAAR community, and the larger global economy. Longevity and impact will be considered with each commitment of resources.

Events will be an opportunity for the community to strengthen and expand through in-person meetings and round table sessions. Held in multiple cities around the world, FAAR events will be an ongoing happening and forum for innovation and advancement of new ideas.

Capitalizing on the inherent contradictions represented through Fashion and Aerospace will be our greatest asset, and our greatest challenge. It will be our privilege and responsibility to approach the over-arching discussions from diverse vantage points, and to constantly reframe them with the aid of our diverse network.

FAAR is founded on the belief that Industry is evolving towards ever-more complex systems, creating opportunity at every new intersection.
