The Uniform Project

What would you do if you had to wear the same dress for the next 365 days?
The Uniform Project

It sounds crazy, but after wearing a uniform for years at her public school in India, it's hardly a challenge for Sheena Matheiken. The Uniform Project is a year-long fundraiser for the Akanksha Foundation, a grassroots movement that is revolutionizing education in India. At the end of the year, all of the contributions will go toward the Akanksha's School Project to fund uniforms and other educational expenses for slum children in India.
In May, Sheena embarked on her mission to exercise sustainable fashion as she documents her daily looks along the way. With tons of accessories and seven identical staple dresses, Sheena is on her way to creating 365 creative and stylish looks. What an inspiration!

If you are a designer or a stylist and feel like you could contribute an accessory or a look, Sheena's got 10 months left and would love to collaborate!
