You Can Wear Just One!

       Being a product of a Catholic girls’ school, wearing a uniform every day was just part of the deal. I  didn’t have to think about what to wear, and it wasn’t until after graduation that I really got influenced in the mode of wearing 365 styles/365 days.

       This uniform thing gotten a new twist from a Brooklyn designer with her launch of The Uniform Project  in May.  The goal for Sheena Matheiken is to wear only one dress for one year, as a statement of sustainable fashion–making do with what we already have, and as a yearlong charity fundraiser for the Akanksha Foundatin, a grassroots group supporting education in India.

Actually, for laundry reasons, it’s seven identical black dresses, that can be accesorized in an array of different accessories, like scarves, vests, leggings, etc.  It’s a simple tunic style, that can be worn either front or back, made from a breathable cotton that can span seasonal changes. Monetary and fashion accessory donations are gladly accepted, so go to the website for more info.

       As of June 23, over $2,700 has been raised. Way to go, Sheena!
