Welcome to the Wearable Technology Lab (WTL) at the College of Design. The WTL focuses on the intersection between apparel and new technology and works to expand garment functionality; improve the way we use, manage, and consume clothing; and streamline the design and manufacturing processes of smart clothing and e-textile products. 

What is the Wearable Technology Lab?

Founded in 2009, the WTL is an interdisciplinary research laboratory directed by Dr. Lucy Dunne and Dr. Brad Holschuh, which focuses on the intersection between apparel design and new technology.
