Secondary school students Julie Quinn, from Cardonagh Community School in Donegal, and Adelina Hmelevska, from Moate Community School in Westmeath, modelled their own designs at the glitzy event which was held at the Royal Albert Hall.

They appeared alongside royalty including Kate Middleton and Princes William and Harry and stars including Rachel Wesz, who accompanied Bond star hubby Daniel Craig, Naomi Harris, Lea Seydoux, and Monica Bellucci.

Julie and Adelina were winners of the Bank of Ireland Junk Kouture competition, which is a fashion and art competition open to secondary school students across the contry.

Entrepreneurs Elizabeth Curran and Troy Armour started the creative competition in 2010 and it aims to encourage entrants to think about the importance of sustainability and recycle materials through a mix of fashion and creativity

The students held their own in their self-designed creations despite appearing alongside designs by legendary houses such as Prada.

The deadline for next year's Junk Kouture competition is January 29, 2016.
