The Uniform Project's Sheena Matheiken speaks at TEDxDubai

Always an inspiration, it is intriguing to see how The Uniform Project develops beyond this "showcasing personal styling for a cause/charity" model. Also incredibly heartening is the viability of crowd-sourced funding for entrepreneurial creatives, e.g. Kickstarter.

And well worth a peep is the work of Eliza Starbuck, the designer of the very first/original classic LBD for the The Uniform Project, who has since has started her own eco-fashion label, Bright Young Things, which seems destined for greatness at the moment!

So...Is there a sustainable, socially/culturally responsible business operations model out there which independent fashion creatives can apply?
