Nancy Judd is Designer and environmental educator turns out wearable art out of recycled materials. This is very odd an unusual concept in present time. Recycled clothing i.e. is a wearable clothes from unconventional materials which have become more and more main stream. Most every season of the reality show "Project Runway" features a challenge where contestants use non-traditional items to create new sartorial designs, and more than a few young women have made duct tape prom dresses. We also have seen the dresses made from edible material like eggplants and bubblegum. This shows that people are being very creative in the fashion design, especial for the re-purpose which delivers positive message to the world about recycling.

Artist and environmental educator Nancy Judd, of Santa Fe, New Mexico, turned down a spot on "Project Runway" because as she is very satisfied with her own project, Recycle Runway. She creates lots of fashionable dresses from what other people called them garbage.


"I love taking garbage—something that people want to push away from and not think about—and transform it into something stylish," Judd recently said Further added that he loved we the people look at the dresses and say that is all about the bottle cans or whatever. She said many designer are doing good things , she likes remain an outsider. "I am an artist making wearable art," she told. She said that she is not attracted to the fashion industry. It creates huge amount of waste, and there are a lot of social justice issues.

The credibility of Judds has been shown in museums, malls, airports across the country and her recent exhibition will be featured at Atlanta's Hartsfield-Jackson International Airport this week
