Join Open Style Lab in celebrating the final presentation for the Open Style Lab Collab class for the 2019 Spring semester at Parsons School of Design on April 23rd!

Students from Parsons School of Design teamed with a person with a disability to co-create wearable solutions, such as accessible clothing or accessories. Each team's universal design process integrated technology and aesthetics in fashion to look at challenges around independent dressing, mobility, and accessibility. Students and their clients will present these functional yet stylish wearable solutions that range from utilizing electronics, 3d printing, performance fabrics, ergonomically designed silhouettes, or computational knitting.
