The Uniform Project: One Year, One Dress

994a1b9d-94d4-40e1-b97f-ca9d33fd2a70_June_24_v3_D

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.
