HAUTE COUTURE GOES GREEN
Environmental artist Nancy Judd is launching her second Recycle Runway Exhibit, this time in the Pittsburgh International Airport, displaying her one-of-a-kind, award-winning recycled fashions from August 1 through December 31, 2008.
Recycle Runway is a traveling exhibit of custom-designed recycled garments showcased around the country to promote recycling efforts and sustainability. Commissioned by global organizations including Toyota, Target, the Glass Packaging Institute and Coca-Cola, the Recycle Runway garments were created to showcase the creativity of sustainability by combining the art of haute couture and environmental education. Preview all the outfits at www.RecycleRunway.com.
Environmental educator, artist, and recycling consultant, Judd, began her artistic creations in 2000. She has been the Recycling Coordinator for the City of Santa Fe, New Mexico, and the Executive Director of the New Mexico Recycling Coalition, and founded the Recycle Santa Fe Art Market and Fashion show. In 2006, Judd won the Portland, Oregon, “Junk To Funk” Fashion Show.
