An Update on The Uniform Project

Year 1 was a huge success, and year 2 started  August 1st!  The Uniform Project (U.P.) is doing things a little differently this time. They have created a  ‘Pilot Series’ – a monthly series of micro-challenges featuring “1 Dress for 1 Month for 1 Cause”. The U.P. will unveil a new face in a new dress each month, who will take on the one dress challenge to fundraiser for a cause of their choice?

Each Pilot will be picked from a niche of unique, creative individuals with exceptional style. Each month, the Pilot will raise funds for a worthy cause, in turn bringing global awareness to each charity they support. In addition, each Pilot will design her own little black dress (LBD) and the U.P. will release a limited edition run of the dress in support of her chosen charity.
So, you want to know more?

Since I am writing this before the weekend (I’ll be spending the last week of summer with my family on our sailboat and won’t have access to computer) I don’t know who the first pilot will be. According to the U.P. blog, “she’s a NYC local with a style and point of view like no other. She’s delightful, dry, artistic, slightly subversive, and just cool.”
I can’t wait to find out!

  1. i can’t sew worth a darn, so i’ve ordered the dress – can’t wait!

  2. The Uniform Project is fabulous. My long-time friend and NYC fashion designer, Tara St. James (who recently became their inhouse fashion + production manager) gave a sneak peek of the new August pilot from New Yorker India today on her blog – check it out here http://4equalsides.com/

    I’m planning to order my LBD from the Uniform Project as a pattern (that comes with fabric) to make myself … so many ways to support this project and have a gorgeous frock!
