Louth County Council is delighted to announce that 3 local creations have reached the final of Junk Kouture 2018. Two of the Finalists recently took part in the Local Trashion Fashion event which was held in the Carrickdale Hotel where 61 models showcased their couture outfits of all shapes and sizes made by the least couture of materials - JUNK! Each outfit is unique. Each one is made from 100% recycled materials!
The Eastern Final was held at the Helix in Dublin on the 5th March, with 17 teams representing Co Louth.
Queen Bean from St Vincents, A Chance to change from Coliste Ris and an entry from Scoil Ui Mhuire, Dunleer modeled by Nadia Zalecka
It is the eight year of the Junk Kouture competition which is sponsored by the Bank of Ireland and it involves students creating wearable and high end garments. The outfits must then be modelled on a catwalk to a 90 second piece of music, which allows the students to choreograph a performance to showcase their creations. The students are judged on recycling of materials, performance and online votes.
Louth will be represented at the National Final by one entry from Colaiste Ris "A chance to change", one from St Vincents "Queen Bean" and one from Scoil Ui Mhuire, Dunleer model Nadia Zalecka. Good luck on the night!
