The Uniform Project

With fashion as her medium, and education her cause, U.P Founder Sheena Matheiken launched the Uniform Project in May 2009, pledging to wear one little black dress for 365 days as an exercise in sustainability and a fundraiser to support the Akanksha Foundation— a non-profit organization providing education to underprivileged children living in Indian slums.She also vowed to make the challenge more meaningful by turning it into a fundraiser to send less fortunate kids to school. And for the next year, Sheena reinvented her uniform by accessorizing with vintage, handmade, reused, or donated pieces.she’d have to make it look unique every single day.
