Lea Yoon

Education Director, Open Style Lab

Lea Yoon is the founding team member and the Education Director at Open Style Lab, a non-profit organization dedicated to creating innovative and stylish clothing for people with disabilities. Initially growing out of a public service project at MIT, Open Style Lab currently provides design consulting service to agencies and individuals who are invested in adaptive clothing designs. Lea is currently finishing her last year at law school at Fordham Law School, where she is a member of the Intellectual Property Law Journal. Her involvement in law is a result of her previous fascination with textual construction, in which she seriously considered the elusive path of scholarship in English Literature and the making of meaning out of words. She holds a B.A. in English Literature from Washington University in St. Louis (which includes a year of reading at University of Oxford, Keble College), and a M.A. from University of Pennsylvania.
