Countdown for Junk Kouture 2014
Published 22/01/2014 | 05:28
THE COUNTDOWN is on for Junk Kouture 2014 and the call is going out to fashionistas in the Drogheda area to get their smartest thinking caps on!
Artistic and creative secondary school pupils across Ireland are being encouraged to get their hands on industrial, electrical, commercial and domestic waste products and to turn them into pieces of fashion art as the deadline for entries to the 2014 Junk Kouture Recycled Fashion competition, proudly supported by Bank of Ireland and the European Recycling Platform (ERP), looms closer – indeed, that deadline of January 31 won't be long in coming around!
Last year's competition saw Louth students Meabh O'Hanrahan, Rachael Begley and Ann-Marie Browne reach the grand final of the competition and go on to be placed first out of all the eastern region competitors with their extravagant design Unlocked. Their design was constructed using keys, and lot of them and was inspired by the 1920s Charleston glamour.
Last year the grand final was attended by over 2,000 spectators in the Bord Gais Energy Theatre and saw Limerick Students 'Ultra Violet Wash' walk away with the top prize of €2,500 for their school, €1000 worth of IT equipment, €500 cash and a trip to the Cannes Film Festival.
