The Uniform Project

 

 

Sheena Matheiken decided to start The Uniform Project in May 2009 by pledging to wear the same uniform dress for the next 365 days. She has 7 identical dresses, 1 for each day of the week, and the only thing that will change are her vintage, hand-made, or second-hand accessories and how far her creativity will take each outfit. 

 

The Uniform Project is aimed at raising money for the Akanksha Foundation, a movement that hopes to change the lives of many children in India with the gift of education. As someone who was raised in India and had no choice but to wear uniforms to school, Sheena Matheiken has now chosen to rewind to the days of uniforms for a good cause.

    great project. Surprised by the variety.

    It’s a cool idea, and nice that she’s supporting a good cause, but as far as actual uniform dressing goes, it amuses me. She basically appears to use a whole second outfit, mostly augmented by the “uniform dress” as an accessory. That’s a whole lot of change for “only”.
