Check It: The Uniform Project
How many times do you wake up in the morning and decide you have nothing to wear? You scour your closet, but alas, nothing. What if you had to wear the same thing for an entire year?
The Uniform Project is a a year-long fundraiser for the Akanksha Foundation, a movement that is helping education in India. One girl wears one style dress for an entire year. Everyday the dress is worn a new way, with new accessories. The whole point of the project is to promote sustainable fashion. At the end of the year, all of the contributions raised through the project will go toward the charity. She had a friend design the dress specifically for the project, keeping in mind it had to be versatile. You can donate accessories to the project. This makes me appreciate my closet in a whole new way.
