Welcome to the new U.P site! A project about daily change can't stay the same forever, right? Well now is the time for that makeover. We will be rolling out the new U.P website this week, so please bear with the little hiccups while we get there. What you will see is not just a design revamp, but also a categorical reorganization of the past 2 years of U.P adventures. Add to that a much-needed upgrade of our technology framework to accommodate for more flexible content updates, and presto, welcome to U.P's whole new look. You will notice that there are a few things missing, but you will also discover a lot of new features… Get the the full update >

Uniform Project was born in May 2009, when one girl pledged to wear a Little Black Dress for 365 days as an exercise in sustainable fashion. Designed to also be a fundraiser for the education of underprivileged children in India, the project acquired millions of visitors worldwide and raised over $100k for the cause. U.P then continued into Year 2 with a monthly series of select Pilots taking on the 1-Dress challenge for causes of their choice. Today, women around the world continue to take on the 1 Dress challenge and wear U.P LBDs as an expression of socially conscious fashion. Get the Full Story >

Fabulous on the Inside

Posted on: January 1st, 1970 by admin No Comments

For all those that loved my do the other day, it was indeed not the second coming of Emma Watson but merely one of my “incognito” wigs. But man – do I love having a cool and cropped bob!

Seeing that it’s yet another soggy morning, I’ll just have to look fabulous on the inside – and experiment in new ways today. This time I’ve done something you have not seen before with this dress, but my fashionable LBD forerunners have already exhibited: Wearing the LBD completely backwards!

I LOVE how this dress cut looks like a totally different 50s shape from the front and the back. I paired that with a hand-crocheted cream collar that my Grandmother lovingly made for me specifically for this LBD moment. Instead of keeping my bob I decided to wear a precious little pony with a most fabulous headpiece created by Emily Clark Millinery. Paired that with white vintage gloves from my late Great Grandmother, a black Carasan Designs belt, B&W bow-tie anklets from Stockingirl and shiny patent leather Franco Sartos.

A DUI for the DAY

Posted on: January 1st, 1970 by admin No Comments

It’s virtually impossible to not DUI (Dress Under the Influence) while living, working and walking the streets of Williamsburg. The street culture is rich and writhing in punk rock, goth, steampunk, jazz, geek-chic, grunge and even the vestiges of the electroclash era.

I’ll be running around BK today grabbing some groceries and later heading for a run around McCarren Park. Other than that: Quick fabric photo shoot of some Ghanaian textiles for Source4Style and dropping off my Beta Max tapes to convert to DVDs.

So I know some of you were asking if you could see this LBD “dress down” or “punk up.” Well here it is – short skirt, short hair, big glasses and all. Almost unrecognizable from yesterday I think! Wearing it as a petal skirt paired w/ a vintage PLASMATICS band tee circa 1984 that I scored from RetroEra back in August; vest from Buffalo Exchange; fingerless bow-tie gloves from Catbird; Model T handbag from recycled rubber – English Retreads; a ruffled duffle from the Ebay Green Team; “Kiss” thigh-highs from Stockingirl; red-seamed boots by Madden; and geek goggles by Urban Outfitters.
