Eco Trash Couture

Nancy Judd, the founder of Recycle Runway, want to change the collective mindset of society through her work that forces people to think about the intersection of the environment and fashion. She designs all of her work with 'trash' in mind and how she can make it beautiful! Some of her work can already be seen as a part of the Smithsonian's permanent collection and she has been sponsored by such international organizations as Delta Airlines, Toyota, Coca-Cola, and Target.

The photo below is one of her works entitled, "Crime Scene". She used tape from police scenes across the West and covered a dress made of table cloths. She admits it took about 50 hours to create and was completed in 2011.

Check out her work and maybe you can get to see some of her work live.
