The LBD Project

My friend Mary Beth just sent me this site and I love it. A woman in Seattle made a brown dress, and wore it every single day for a year. This was her attempt to “reject the economic system that pushes over-consumption, and the bill of goods that has been sold, especially to women, about what makes a person good, attractive and interesting.” Alex Martin, the designer and “performer” in this non-consumer experiment, spent less than $20 on clothes over the course of the year. Alex has now committed to making all of her own clothes using recycled materials for the next year. I admire her ability to keep on truckin’…I’ve clearly folded like a cheap (well…maybe not so cheap!) tent in my feeble attempts to hop back off the consumer train. Check her site out and let me know what you think!
