The Uniform Project


I have been following The Uniform Project for a few months now. This is a very neat internet project that would be cool even if it was just for it's own sake. The fact that it is raising funds for The Akanjsha Foundation makes it particularly good.

What is the Uniform Project? To quote from the site: "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." She then takes and posts self-portraits in these outfits. Readers will comment and rate the outfits, and people make donations as they see fit. As of today, the site has raised $52,621 to send kids to school in India.

Hurray for awesome internet projects!


Hi there, This is Jessica from The Uniform Project.
Thank you so much for this lovely post! We are constantly amazed and inspired by everyone's support and creativity (donations, ideas, stories etc) lent to our project. We really couldn't do it without you guys. And by the by, we are looking for stylish folk to wear our little black dress next year: Cheers from the U.P!

Always happy to help out a cool project like this.
