The incredible versatility of the LBD - The Uniform Project
Have you heard about the Uniform Project? If not, you should check it out, it's a pretty cool idea.
The project is the creation of Sheena Matheiken, of Brooklyn NY... a sort of style stunt/experiment in sustainable fashion/fundraiser for children in the slums of India. Here's her description of the project:
Starting May 2009, I have pledged to wear one dress for one year as an exercise in sustainable fashion. 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.
