Junk Kouture

Junk Kouture

Junk Kouture is a national contest that encourages young designers in second level education to create striking fashion designs and works of wearable art from everyday junk that would normally find its way into the bin. It takes in elements of fashion, design, engineering and environmental sustainability and transforms them into a creative contest like no other. Junk Kouture has inspired and captivated thousands of students and teachers across the country.

In their first year of entry, our students have been extremely successful in reaching the regional final in The Helix in 2019. This is a testament to their creativity, skill and strong work ethic. Each team displays their astonishing innovation, with remarkable performances during the live shows. Their designs featured a highly detailed and imaginative use of recycled materials.

The students are currently working on their entries for the 2020 competition!

Congratulations to our 6th Year LCA students on the fantastic achievements they have achieved in the Junk Kouture project over the last 2 Years. Junk Kouture is a national competition where students work in teams to design pieces of wearable Art out of recycled materials. Everyone here at St.Aidan's are extremely proud of all their hard work and the wonderful projects that they achieved.

Using a wide range of materials to design their outfits: sugar paper, newspaper, tinsel, wool, plastic,string, tablecloths, recycled clothing, wire, tinfoil are to name just a few. Upon their first year of entry, the students were innovative and creative, creating beautiful and striking outfits. They even made the shortlist and represented the school in the Dublin final at The Helix last year! This year, they showed excellent teamwork skills and commitment, creating another array of fantastic designs.

Congratulations again to our 6th Year LCA students!
