Spread The Word: The Uniform Project

  • Pin it

The fashblogosphere has a special category of daily fashionistas who dress themselves and take a picture, make an article around it. In order to see that happening, you have got to take (at least) one look at Susie Bubble or Rumi.

But the Uniform Project is something different! A great project with charity as end purpose and a very specific theme – wearing the same dress for 365 days! (the story continues after the jump with more pictures!)

The Uniform Project

It all started on May 1st with a custom designed dress (by Eliza Starbuck) that can be worn both ways. The 7 identical dresses are reinvented on a daily basis by Sheena Matheiken who’s helping raising funds for the Akanksha Foundation (which is trying to provide financial support to educational expenses for slum children in India).

I personally think this is not only a wonderful initiative and a great way to help spreading the education but it’s also an amazing fashion ambition. What makes fashion? You do, not the clothes on your back! So how about the Uniform Project? Ready to spread the word? (The Uniform Project via Treehugger)
