Today, on the anniversary of the Apollo 11 moon landing, seems as good a day as ever to remind everyone of what it is that drives this brand. We are not just a fashion brand who wants to see everyone wearing our clothes so that we can become rich. We don’t want to tell people what to wear and charge ridiculous prices for products that are cheap to make. We have a message behind us that goes beyond fashion. Our intentions are good and our message is positive.
In our worlds history only two dozen humans have ever seen the Earth as it’s complete globe; have ever stepped foot on another world; and have ever been able to put their thumb up and blot out the only world that has ever experienced life, love and petty hate.
Such a momentous occasion changed the world dramatically. 600 million people from all over watched our first steps off planet and for the first time in our known history there was a great feeling of unity and achievement.
But now, the generation that watched those first grainy images on their black and white tv’s at home, and who were so inspired by what they saw that it changed them; that generation is growing old and with them the inspirational legacy of the landings. Modern generations do not have such an inspirational, world-changing event to look to. Exactly why it makes it of the utmost importance to remember and be proud of our history.
Our mission is to reignite that passion; that inspiration. The belief that we are all made of the right stuff. We can achieve whatever we want to, if we truly want it. Our brand is not just about clothing. It is about a message of positivity, creativity and bravery which reaches much further than fashion.
Help us to teach people to dream again. Remind people of what they can create with a little hard work and determination. And remind people of how inspiring the topic of space exploration can be. Nothing is ever achieved alone, help us spread this message and create a positive movement.
We have started a tag #thespacemovement. Begin using it yourselves. Tell your friends our space fact of the day, share anything about space you find interesting and give it #thespacemovement tag. Become a promoter for us so that you can more easily spread the word, whilst also earning free clothes. Any purchases you’ve made with us, tag them #ttmclothing to appear on our website’s homepage! Co-operate with other space bloggers and enthusiasts, team up and share your passion with others so that together we inspire more and more.
When a greater number of people learn about the sheer scope of space and realise how fragile and unique our pale blue dot is, they will begin to realise how petty our quarrels are with one another.
"When you’re finally up at the moon looking back on Earth, all those differences and nationalistic traits are pretty well going to blend, and you’re going to get a concept that maybe this really is one world and why the hell can’t we learn to live together like decent people" - Frank Borman, Apollo 8
