llani Creative

Wearable art is a powerful medium that delivers the message of recycling so effectively. It captures our imagination and makes us rethink waste. Junkies first met Claudia Williams, aka ‘llani Creative’, when we invited her to help us create an outfit for our first Rethink Exhibition back in 2017. The result was spectacular, as is everything she creates.

We are excited to be able to showcase Claudia’s work once again with this cover story interview.

What is the driving force behind your creations?

It’s to educate my audience about using recycled materials to create with. Playing with recycled materials sparks another level of creative thinking and problem solving. It’s a continuous discovery for me as there’s so much recycled material just waiting to be turned into something new.

What impression do you
