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 >

I’m feeling quite festive today so I decided to skittle it up and taste the rainbow. Might as well because something needs to ward off this wintery mix that has reared its head once again.

For all of you who responded to yesterday’s post about the NYC Garment Center Town Hall – just to let you know it was a really engaged crowd and panel discussion. I’ll be posting an overview later tonight on the Source4Style blog: S4.

Our field research intern, Jessica, will also be coming in to the office today to present her experience+data collection from factories in the garment industry. Hopefully by being involved in all of this initial research, we’ll be able to come up with a useful tool via Source4Style to bring more business to the garment centers and help designers find what they’re looking for more easily. All those updates will be via the SMARTER GARMENT CENTER™.

As for my LBD? Let’s see. I really layered it on: I left a few buttons secured at the bottom & stepped through it. The amazing confetti-like ruffle sweater is by Carasan Designs. Tagua nut bracelet+necklace (Palma Collection); Guatemalan beaded bracelet (Mercado Global); feather headpiece (Emily Clark); vintage leather heart inlay Rancho Loco cowboy boots (Atomic Fireball); vintage hand-painted Mexican folklore falda circa 1950s (RaimentRevival);
