the uniform project - 07Aug09
i received a sweet little email just now from sheena of THE UNIFORM PROJECT telling me that she was wearing my THIN bangles today - and sure enough, there she is! (and isn't she so cute!?!) i originally stumbled upon the project through kat's blog and it essentially is one woman's pledge "to wear one dress for one year as an exercise in sustainable fashion" - stemming from her childhood in india, where uniforms were mandated. she worked with a clothing designer & friend Eliza Starbuck to design a dress and then they made 7 of them (indentical) - one for each day of the week. she takes pictures of herself each day and the ways in which she layers and accessories her one dress to create a unique outfit. i was so inspired that i contacted her and eliza to see if i could send them any of my jewelry for use in the project. i sent some over last week and today - august 7th - she is wearing one of my pieces! i am so excited to be a part of such a cool venture! i encourage you to check out her site here.
