Sheena Matheiken on The Uniform Project

sheena-matheiken.jpgIn May 2009, with fashion as her medium, and education her cause, Sheena Matheiken launched the Uniform Project, pledging to wear one little black dress for 365 days as an exercise in sustainability, and a fundraiser to support the Akanksha Foundation – a non-profit organization providing education to children living in Indian slums.

For the next year, Sheena reinvented her one little black dress uniform on a daily basis solely using accessories that were either vintage, handmade, reused or donated.

Susan notes: Thanks to TED for making TED Talks downloadable and embeddable, and for providing the biographical information that goes along with them.
