One girl, one dress, one year, and infinite reasons why this project is great.

I remember how much I hated school uniforms because I didn’t really get to go on “back to school” shopping sprees, but when I discovered The Uniform Project, I was blown away! The objective was simple: one girl exercises sustainable fashion for an entire year by wearing one dress that’s decked out differently each day with recycled jewelry and other accessories. The result: a stylish and unique outfit for every day of the year! The project was also a fundraiser for the Akanksha Foundation, a movement that donates money to fund uniforms and educational expenses for kids living in Indian slums. The project started in May 2009 and  just finished this month, raising a total of $80,579 in donations. Check out the video below to watch a photo slideshow of every outfit worn starting from Day 1! The project is on a break for now, but I look forward to finding out what’s next.
