The Uniform Project Premieres Little Black Dress With a Multifunctional Twist

The Uniform Project (U.P.) continues to reimagine the classic little black dress. First it was a convertable romper dress, then came the reversible stretch dress, and now, the LBD has been severed into two parts: a zip down high-waisted skirt and a shell top that doubles as a two-piece suit, which is, as the following photos show, suitable for a variety of occasions.

In line with The Uniform Project's ethos, mixing social responsibility with style, a portion of proceeds from this version of the dress will benefit A Glimmer of Hope. The U.P.'s Jessica Engle, who wore the dress for one month--view the lookbook, here, hopes to raise $48,000 to build a school for the Senale village in Ethiopia, where she grew up.
