New Mexico-based artist and environmental educator Nancy Judd uses fashion to engage people in environmental issues.

Nancy’s “Recycle Runway” couture fashion sculptures made from trash include a “faux fur” coat — old cassette tapes woven into the fabric of a thrift store coat. Discarded video tape accents the coat’s collar and cuffs, and material from a thrift store dress was used inside as lining.

Nancy’s “junk mail dress” was one of the first items we featured on Unconsumption (back in 2009!). It’s here.
