Fashion tech designer Anouk Wipprecht is joining forces with the art and tech nonprofit Codame to run a new R&D studio in downtown San Francisco.
Wipprecht, who has created experimental smart dresses with Intel and Audi, will serve as creative director for Codame Labs which plans to focus on cross-discipline collaboration between the fashion and tech industries.
