ReDress: Upcycled Style by Nancy Judd

Wausau

Artist and environmental educator Nancy Judd of Recycle Runway creates couture fashion from rubbish, lacing each garment with conservation consciousness. Glamorous, shimmering evening gowns, appearing as fine couture and refined garments, are made from crushed glass and salvaged upholstery fabric. The Jellyfish Dress, an elegant frock constructed from dry cleaner, grocery, and newspaper plastic bags, serves as a fashionista's reminder that these carelessly discarded bags can be fatal to sea creatures. Inspired by the challenge to "upcycle" and spark a wave of waste reduction, Judd has been commissioned by Target, Toyota, Coca Cola Company, and Delta Air Lines to encourage consumer awareness through her work.
