How's this for fabulous?  Woman from India now living in Brooklyn took on the challenge of wearing the same dress for 365 days.  The purpose of this fashion excursion was to raise money for school uniforms and other expenses for children in the slums of India to be able to attend school.  She not only wore the dress for 365 days she raised over 100,000.    Each day she invented  a different look with accessories, shoes, hats, or anything else that she could get her hands on.  The video of every outfit that she wore is on her website www.theuniformproject.com.

I was so inspired by this, I decided to see if I could get an interview with the Uniform Project people.  I ended up talking to ELIZA STARBUCK of Bright Young Things clothing (www.youbrightyoungthings.com).  She is THE designer of this dress that Sheena wore every day last year.  What a thrill it was to talk to her and find out about how the partnership began.  I have an article coming out this Friday in the Greenpoint Gazette about Eliza and her line and what makes her pieces so versatile.  I am so in love with this idea, charity and the dress!  Eliza said I could pay her in installments.  Excellent.
