A veritable trailblazer of wearable technology on Irish shores, Maureen Laverty saw the fruits of her labour recognised last month: winning the Future Makers Student Innovation Award from the Design & Crafts Council of Ireland.

Uniquely fusing her engineering experiments with conductive yarns, Laverty weaves sensors into everyday clothing to comfortably exploit the wearer’s movements; an old-meets-new approach set to metamorphosise future fashion sectors.
