In the spirit of the upcoming Inauguration, here’s something cool. Nancy Judd is showing a collection of clothing made out of trash at the Green Inaugural Ball in Washington DC.
Ms. Judd has been creating amazing clothing out of garbage for about 10 years, despite having no fashion training. She imagines her pieces (which take hundreds of hours to make) as statements, rather than everyday wear, and looked up Obama’s measurements in order to make him a suit out of campaign doorhangers from his campaign. (Note: he will not be wearing it when he’s sworn in).
If you don’t believe that Nancy’s garbage creations could possibly be beautiful, check out this slideshow of her work here.
