The Uniform Project

The Uniform Project is like an extreme version of what I would like my Style Diary to be. One of my personal goals in developing Sugar Rock Catwalk was to encourage and help demonstrate how easy it is to create different looks using the same pieces - in short, sustainable fashion.

Sheena Matheiken has pledged to wear one dress for one year as an exercise in sustainable fashion. One dress? Well, there are 7 identical dresses, one for each day of the week. And everyday, she jazzes up and reinvents the dress with different accessories.

"The Uniform Project is also a year-long fundraiser for the Akanksha Foundation, a grassroots movement that is revolutionizing education in India. At the end of the year, all contributions will go toward Akanksha’s School Project to fund uniforms and other educational expenses for slum children in India."

I love this project! It's so well-executed and so thoughtful. Bravo!
