S2E7: Grace Jun

Grace Jun is the Executive Director of Open Style Lab, a nonprofit that aims to make fashion accessible to people with disabilities.

Jun will spend weeks observing an individual client before attempting to design a solution:
I watch how they get up in the morning, how they talk about the clothes they have in their closet — it’s very interesting, the attitudes they have about fashion and clothing, too — and also just how they maneuver with daily life chores.
This close observation has led to a rain jacket for wheelchair users that a bike messenger could also wear.
