The Uniform Project

Think about wearing the same dress for 365 days. It seems impossible but Sheena Matheiken is doing it.

Going through the NY Times Blog I have found out about TheUniformProject, a year-long fundraiser for the Akanksha Foundation, a grassroots movement that is revolutionizing education in India.
Starting May 2009, Sheena Matheiken has pledged to wear one dress for one year as an exercise in sustainable fashion. Every day she reinvents the dress with layers, accessories and all kinds of accouterments, the majority of which are vintage, hand-made, or hand-me-down goodies.

I guess that from now own whenever I think that there is absolutely nothing in my closet to wear, I simply need to be more imaginative.
