There are few spaces to apply universal, interdisciplinary design methods and network with PWD to create accessible clothing. Open Style Lab ("OSL"), is a New York-based non-profit organization dedicated to creating innovative garment solution for people with disability, implements an interdisciplinary model for creating such solutions.  As a thought leader and R&D think-tank, OSL serves to fill a gap in the current market for adaptive clothing and wearable technologies by pioneering research where the universal role of clothing is a social integration tool integral to an individual's ability to engage with the surrounding community. We will be sharing several stories and case studies at Open Style Lab at Parsons School of Design that relate to 3d modeling, 3d printing or scanning. Examples may include past collaborative work and current work related to greater accessibility for NYC metro and 3D printing clothing closures.
