One personís trash Ö is anotherís couture fashion
On April 18, Hartsfield-Jackson unveiled trendy, couture fashions made exclusively from trash in a new art exhibit, “Recycle Runway.” The artwork features high-end collections of 18 wearable, eco-trash garments made by artist Nancy Judd.
“ ‘Recycle Runway’ is the perfect blend of craft, inspiration and imagination,” said Katherine Dirga, Airport Art Program manager. “Nancy’s artistic collection is sure to captivate observers and challenge them to expand their ideas about the limits of usefulness.”
The exhibit was inspired by vintage designs and created from discarded and reclaimed materials. Judd spent up to 450 hours designing and creating each piece.
“I love the challenge of transforming trash into glamorous fashions that, from afar, look like elegant designs,” said the Santa Fe, N.M., resident.
Judd hopes her fashions will inspire others to become eco-leaders.
“We each make choices every day that can help to solve the environmental crisis,” she said.
The “Recycle Runway” fashions will be in exhibit cases on Concourse E through April 2012.
These boots are made of pieces of a phone book.
