Junk Kouture at Castletroy College

by joeshortt

Its Junk Kouture time again at Castletroy College!

Bank of Ireland Junk Kouture is a national contest which encourages young designers in second level education to create striking couture designs and impressive works of wearable art from everyday junk that would normally find its way into the bin. Junk Kouture aims to inspire and ignite passion in these teenagers while at the same time subtly educating them about the importance of recycling and reusing waste. This is what our students have created for Junk Kouture 2017.

Junk Kouture

Dress Name: Tiamat

Students :Sophia Kumeh, Emer  Boland, Rebecca Voye

Our theme for our dress is the sea.We thought the CDs would resemble scales,reflecting light as scales would,mimicking movements of fish.We used other shiny objects,which enhance our beautiful iridescent dress.

Dress Name: Chroma Flert

Students: Brannagh Mcguire, Fiona Bynane Power, Adrija Pavlova

The outfit consists of mainly plastic cups, straws and plastic wrapping. The powder paint gives it a more vibrant feel. We changed something plain to something powerful and unique.

Dress Name: Papillon Papier   Roisin Clothier, Caitlin Murphy, Mariana Costa Pinta

This dress symbolizes the power of the written-word and how, like monarch butterflies, words can travel thousands of miles across the globe and metamorphose.
