— Grace Jun is a designer, educator and social entrepreneur based in New York. She is passionate about 'making' as a way of learning. By merging fashion with technology for accessibility, Grace pushes the boundaries of universal design.
I make, learn, and share to create inclusive experiences.
From designing graphic interfaces for smart phones and wearables, to constructing accessible blazers for women with breast cancer, Grace's work examines the intersection of fashion & technology. Focused on socially responsible design, she uses code and craft to make interactive explorations that further support her role at Open Style Lab (OSL), a non-profit organization.
Currently, Grace is an Adjunct Lecturer at the School of Fashion and the Arts, Media, and Technology program at Parsons School of Design, and serves on FIT Musuem's Body Advisory Committee. She holds a BFA from the Rhode Island School of Design (RISD) and a masters in Design & Technology from Parsons.
