Space Fashion Experts: Summer Ash and Emily Rice

Sci Chic is excited to launch our first pieces designed in collaboration with Women in STEM from around the country!

I always liked math and science, but I didn’t start learning about astronomy until late high school/early college. As soon as I did, luckily through...
