One dress for 365 days? Sometimes it feels like we've changed our outfit that many times in one day. Enter The Uniform Project, where the fashionable Sheena Matheiken wore a little black dress every single day for one year. A cute LBD that's stylish, sustainable and socially conscious – is that possible?
Here's how it worked: Seven versions of the same dress were created for Sheena to wear. Loyal followers of the project blog would donate jewelry, shoes and clothing which Sheena mixed with items from her own closet to create unique outfits centred on the same LBD each day.
Sheena experimented with quirky style statements, pairing the dress with an eclectic assortment of pants, salwaars, dresses, skirts, leggings and tights. But this project wasn't just the whim of a New York girl gone crazy in her closet. Besides promoting sustainable fashion, Sheena also raised funds for the Akanksha Foundation, a grassroots movement to bring education to children living in Indian slums.
While the original LBD sold out quickly once it became available online, a new version is now available for all you socially conscious fashionistas looking to start your own sustainable style movement. Made out of organic cotton and silk, this dress has the ability to transport you from the office to a night out, with just a few well-selected accessories.
Available in sizes XS to XL for $150 at The Uniform Project, Year 2.
