Madison Maxey, a Thiel Fellow, is literally changing the fabric of fashion and wearables, most lately via CRATED, a design consultancy and R&D lab that uses qualitative research and a highly technical team of multi-disciplinary makers to create designs and experiences in the wide world of wearables. CRATED has consulted, tinkered, and prototyped at the intersection where object meets body.
Maxey has been featured in New York Magazine, the Wall Street Journal, Nylon Magazine, among others, and was named a “Female Founder to Watch” by Women 2.0. It was while working at General Assembly that she made it her goal to combine all things technological and fashionable, and was accepted into the Thiel Fellowship for the class of 2013. Maxey’s got moxy and that’s totally amazing!
