Students from Colaiste Bride are through to the final
Colaiste Bride, Enniscorthy, have five dresses that were selected to go through the Grand Final of the Bank of Ireland Junk Kouture competition.
Each year transition year students from Colaiste Bride design and create unique dresses made from recycled and recyclable materials, so they can take part in Ireland's leading fashion and art competition.
This year 28 dresses were created by 83 students with the help from their teachers, Michelle McEvoy and Frances Kervick, with the process starting in September.
'Many of the girls worked after school, at weekends and indeed long into the night to create their masterpieces,' said Ms Kervick.
Out of the 28 dresses, 22 of them were selected to take part in the Eastern Regional Finals that were held in the Helix, Dublin, where only 10 dresses were being picked.
'On the night, five dresses were chosen and they will go through to the Grand Final in the 3Arena on April 27,' said Ms Kervick.
The dresses going to the final are 'La Cheveux de Chien' by Kaset Grant Kehoe, Nicole Whelan and Catherine Broaders, 'Ex-Straw-Dinary' by Colleen Coughlan, Patrycja Wiaczek and Lily Mahon, 'The Edge of Elegance' by Lucy O'Leary, Annalise Creane and Patrycja Mazurczak, 'Princess Guerrera' by Patrycja Czerpak, Faith Gardener and Lystus Ebosele and 'Hoya Capita' by Isabel Sinnott, Aoife Foy and Lauren McGlynn.
