The Uniform Project

Inspired by the memory of breaking the dress code conformity of Catholic school as a child with whatever accessories she could get her hands on and a desire to give back where she knew there was a need, Sheena Matheiken started The Uniform Project. Everyday, for an entire year she will wear the same, simple black dress (created by friend and designer - Eliza Starbuck). Each outfit is made unique by the addition of an incredible array of shoes, tights, jewelery, scarves and more. Whether the origin of her frills and baulbles is a friend, a donation (many of her socks and tights are from Sock Dreams), or her own closet, every outfit is a testament to the power of creativity - click through a few days and you'll have to make an effort to even notice the dress. At the end of the year all funds raised will be donated to The Akanksha Foundation - "a grassroots movement that is revolutionizing education in India."

I believe she has 7 of them - one for each day of the week.

I love this girl - she has more creativity wearing the same dress every day than I do with a closet full of clothes!

That's right - she has 7 identical dresses, one for each day of the week. The dress was designed to be worn front and back, or as an open tunic. It will eventually be available purchase if anyone is interested in such a versatile little number. Keep an eye on on the website. Of course, all proceeds after expenses will be donated.
