Recycle Runway owner, Nancy Judd, will be showcasing some of her dumpster couture outfits at the upcoming Green Inaugural Ball in Washington.

Judd is well known for glamourizing garbage to create environmentally friendly ensembles made from recycled materials including crushed glass, rusty nails, electrical wire, cassette tapes, plastic bags and soda tabs.

Her outfits are incredibly unique wearable sculptures which each command prices in the region of $30,000.

The campaign couture outfits to be showcased at the Green Inaugural Ball include a 1950s-style cocktail dress made from Obama yard signs, a man’s winter coat covered with paper campaign door hangers, a woman’s "swing" coat stitched together using voter-registration materials and a ball gown made from campaign posters.
