The Recycle Runway Collection
Nancy Judd creates couture fashion sculptures made from trash (the Recycle Runway Collection) and displays her garments in high-traffic traveling exhibitions in museums, airports, and shopping malls. Each of her garments takes between 100-650 hours to create, and her goal is that they will last for 100 years. Ms. Judd loves the challenge of making garbage elegant and inspiring people to look differently at waste.

Ms. Judd can create a site-specific piece for you or your organization! She loves to collaborate– asking the questions: “What are your waste materials?” and “What are the environmental issues that are pertinent to you or your region?” Using the answers to these questions Nancy designs site-specific commissions that are meaningful and pertinent to the sponsor. She loves to deepen the connection even further, by including the community in the creation of the piece as well.

Praise from a garment sponsor:
|“Nancy contacted the local Target store to make the Target recycling dress, and the store team really got into it by coming up with lots of materials we were recycling and even some that we weren’t. That made the team think more about what they were throwing away. It was a great project and the impact of the dress is excellent.”
