Do you think that you could wear the same dress every day for an entire year? For Sheena Matheiken, that’s her goal as part of the Uniform Project, a charity movement to raise money for the Akanksha Foundation, which helps to educate slum children in India. The project, which began on May 1 of this year, centers around a plain and simple black dress that Matheiken will accessorize into a new outfit each day. Afterwards, she’ll take pictures and post them on her site, allowing for readers to vote on what they think.
She writes in her mission:
“I was raised and schooled in India where uniforms were a mandate in most public schools. Despite the imposed conformity, kids always found a way to bend the rules and flaunt a little personality…Peaking through the sea of uniforms were the idiosyncrasies of teen style and individual flare. I now want to put the same rules to test again…”
