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 >

Wow, what a momentous occasion: We have successfully raised enough money to build one UP well and are on our way of reaching our ultimate goal of 2 wells! I want to start off by thanking all who have given and to Payless for matching the funds because it makes our combined efforts that much easier. Starting today even some of my wardrobe will be auctioned on I-Ella, proceeds going to charity: water as well.

Today is my last full day in New York for a bit, as I’ll be on a mini-speaking tour until April 5th. I leave late in the day tomorrow to my Alma Mater to give 2 talks – one campus-wide keynote entitled from Rainforests to Runways: One young woman’s wild journey in fashion, activism and entrepreneurship, which I thought was a fun title. The second talk happens right after at the Johnson Business School specifically on building Source4Style. I’ll be back on the 31st just in time for a panel talk (and my last LBD day with all of you (sniffles))….

I’d love if you all can keep up with me though, as I have to share how I’ll be helping transform Times Square in New York on April 7th – and of course, the environmental film that I plan to finish very, very soon, Sacred Headwaters…and so much more…

In the meantime, I turned my LBD into a drop crotch jumper with a few deft pulls of the strings. Vintage Navajo bolero (Ebay Green Team); Dirty Librarian Chains necklace; and recycled Panamanian Mola shoes. Photo: Rory Gunderson.
