The Uniform Project: 1 outfit, 365 days

Fashion has to be one of those topics that I know nearly nothing about - but even I can appreciate the challenge and creativity behind TheUniformProject.com. Here's how it works:

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 boudoir1.

And she's pulling it off:

What a fun example of how you can take your cause global with just a good idea and the web.

1Marquis de what? - ah hell, what do I know.
