The Uniform Project: One Year, One Dress


Sheena Matheiken has vowed to wear just one dress for an entire year.  An “exercise in sustainable fashion,” Matheiken has created The Uniform Project to prove that one can be fashionable and inventive without being wasteful. She will actually have  6 dresses, but they’re all the same uniform, which she will change up with “accessories and all kinds of accouterments, the majority of which will be vintage, hand-made, or hand-me-down goodies.”

This experiment is also a fundraiser for the Akanksha Foundation, a grassroots organization that aims to bring education to children in the slums of India.

Check out The Uniform Project website to donate money and accessories.

I heart this idea. I wouldn’t mind wearing one too, for the whole year!

Love the dress! A uniform would save me so much time
but am not sure I could wear one for a whole year…
