Uniform Project – the ultimate example of recycling clothes

I don’t know much about fashion. I’m the kind of person that has a few staple items, and a few other bits I love and that’s about it. I detest clothes shopping, but I don’t mind ogling some of the sites where people show off their outfits each day.

I found this video, which takes the idea of a staple to extremes. To help raise money for charity, Sheena set up the Uniform Project – wearing the same little black dress every day for a year (or the same style dress anyway, I assume there was some washing involved).

The result was a lot of money raised, and a lot of accessorising. I love this video, mostly for the production involved, and a little bit for the fashion.

It has also just occurred to me that I don’t even own a little black dress. May have to rectify this situation.

  1. I followed her blog for about the final third of the original project, it was very interesting. I was just starting to understand the whole ‘remixing’ fashion concept and this was a great, if extreme example! IIRC she had 3 or 4 identical copies of the dress (to allow for washing). Since then I think they’ve had other people doing the concept for 30 days at a time (with different styles of dresses I think)
