I'm a fashion designer and PhD researcher specialized in wearable technology. In 2010, I founded my own design studio that is immersed in the dynamic intersection of fashion and technology and is dedicated to collaborative, cross-disciplinary work. Together with my team, I create solar fashion, illuminated sportswear and garments that integrate sensors or that give haptic feedback to the wearer. By building an ecosystem that is made up of textile companies, fashion brands, apparel manufacturers, universities and research centers, our innovations aim to affect all areas of the fashion system. I've presented my work at numerous festivals, conferences and exhibitions around the world including TEDx, SXSW, CES and The Next Web and have received nominations by MIT, Forbes and Inspiring Fifty.
