1 Dress, 365 Days




The Uniform Project is the brainchild of Brooklyn designer, Sheena Matheiken. She has pledged to wear one dress for a year as "an exercise in sustainable fashion," and with the purpose of raising money for The Akanksha Foundation who fund uniforms and other educational expenses for slum children in India.

"Here’s how it works: There are 7 identical dresses, one for each day of the week. Every day I will reinvent the dress with layers, accessories and all kinds of accouterments, the majority of which will be vintage, hand-made, or hand-me-down goodies. Think of it as wearing a daily uniform with enough creative license to make it look like I just crawled out of the Marquis de Sade's boudoir."

Could you wear one dress for a year??

PS-Be sure to stop by tomorrow as there will be a fantastic giveaway right here on the Heist blog!

Little Brown Dress - very much one single dress worn for an entire year by Alex Martin in Seattle circa 2005-2006!
