Junkyard to Catwalk!

We are delighted to report that several of our pupils will be showing work at the Junk Kouture finals at the Royal Concert Hall on Friday 5th February.

Junk Kouture is a national contest which encourages young designers in secondary schools to create striking couture designs from everyday junk that would normally find its way into the bin.

The contest aims to inspire and ignite passion in these teenagers whilst subtly educating them about the importance of recycling. Over the last five years, Junk Kouture has established itself as the premier recycled fashion competition for teenagers throughout Ireland and Northern Ireland, and in 2015 extended its creative platform to Scotland.

At the final Scotland's top designers will take to the stage to battle it out to be crowned Junk Kouture winner 2016.
