Fashion, passion and politics: No paradox here...

I absolutely love it when people can marry their many interests together! I stumbled across The Uniform Project which documents blogger Sheena Matheiken's attempt to make sustainable fashion a reality. She plans to wear the same black shift dress for 356 days straight (alright, not the exact same garment, but 7 specially designed identical versions of the dress so its sustainable AND hygienic). In attempt to keep things interesting, she is also incorporating the use of hand-me-down accessories such as hats, shoes, jewelry, tights, scarves, gloves etc etc. Check out the above screen shot where she pays tribute to the late King of Pop, Michael Jackson.
Apart from raising awareness, she is also collecting cash donations for the Akanksha Foundation, a non-profit group that provides educational programs to children who live in Mumbai’s slums.
