What drives the Open Style Lab initiatives is our relentless call for universal design within the fashion industry. From shifting perspectives to educating minds and providing resources, we continuously work to create change from every angle of the multi-billion-dollar industry that encompasses not only luxury items but also the basic apparel we all need.

We are excited to share with you our journals—a roundup of personal and industry insights about inclusive design for people with disabilities. In each issue, we’ll highlight examples of positive change that are paving the way for a more thoughtful, diverse, and accessible future for everyone.

Reusable Mask Design

Considering the needs of healthcare workers and people with disabilities during the COVID-19 pandemic, we are creating a multipurpose design to make DIY reusable fabric masks and plastic mask covers. Our design tutorial aims to inform the current need of PPE (Personal Protective Equipment) design innovation, as well as to raise awareness on available alternatives that people can make at home. To make DIY masks at home, download and print the patterns and instruction below. Share your DIY results with us by @openstylelab on Instagram and Facebook!

Disclaimer: Our designs DO NOT replace medical-grade surgical masks and N95 respirators. They DO NOT provide 100% protection and should be used for emergency protection only.
