Dispelling the myth that accessible design cannot be functional and beautiful at the same time, Sinéad Burke will speak from her personal lived and professional experience of working with global fashion companies such as Gucci and Ralph Lauren to illustrate how innovative, accessible design could benefit all, using poignant examples.
This lecture is not just for fashion designers, or designers in general. By the end of the session, you will feel encouraged to rethink and reimagine traditional design and the world as we know it, through a lens of creativity and innovation.
