Day 359. Sat, April 24 2010


Ode to one of the great surrealists. Red tie, bowler hat and green apple donated by HAHAmag, an online arts and culture quarterly magazine. Thanks Davy for the photoshop battleship :)

We had another fun LBD Friday, thanks to all of you! All photos are now up on our facebook page >



You still aren't running out of ideas! The team have notched things up a bit as you head to the finish line. Very impressive line up of LBDs from around the world on facebook, and I saw UP gets a mention on frisky web site.

Though I wouldn't have believed it possible, this just keeps getting more and more awesome. Please don't go! Just think of how empty my evenings will be! :P

Quite possibly my favorite day. Love the concept and the execution. So sad but so excited for the final countdown.

Farmer Beth tagged this Excellent

Going out with a Bang! This is just way too cool. I bet Magritte would have loved it too!

I can't say that I am at all fashion conscious, but your creativity has been a bright spot after many a long, hard day at my school in NYC. Congratulations on an inspiring project. Your Magritte look is wonderful. The image editing makes it breathtaking.

This is such amazing.

Irene tagged this brilliant

Amazing job! I loved how you stepped up your game as the UP project comes to a close. One more week to go! I wonder what would be the first thing you'll wear after wearing the uniform for a whole year...

What an adventure I have been watching. Every day a different response - light-hearted, tongue-in-cheek, business wearables, haute couture, costumes, grunge, avant garde. ball gowns, ethnic designs, of course vintage and now surealism, All with a little black dress that was meticulously, precisely designed to be worn on its own or altered with assessories from around the world. Dreamsocks, generous friends, up and coming designers, jewelers and your encouragers were all part of it. Brilliant choices of color, a real eye for shape, a whimsical plan for the complete presentation. I always had a reaction - a sigh for beauty, shock, giggles, a 'how clever'. being spooked, an 'ah' for the petite little girl. It was a honorable goal and you, the students and your audience are honored by your idea. I will miss you.

You took the vision to the moon! Thanks for letting us be a part of this exciting project.


Photo 1 is what I'm planning (yes, I plan early...) on dressing up as for Halloween this year! I can't decide if I should paint an apple on my face, or design a hat that has an apple hanging off the front of it.

Wow! So in the last 359 days I've learnt about Akanksha, sustainable fashion, ethical fashion, Herman Wallace, Right Rides, shopping, style...and so much more. Today, I've learnt about Rene's Son of Man. Thank you.

Sarah Hambly tagged this Brave

Amazing! So thrilled to see that an already incredible concept has grown into a highly complex, intellectually stimulating yet fundamentally altruistic community.

Having been an art student in the 70's and making all my own clothes at that time, I am so impressed and awed by your project. The ideas are brilliant and your 365 variations are stunning...I wish I'd thought of this...so happy you are doing this now, when we really need to shift our focus.
