Calling all budding artists, designers, stylists & fashionistas!
Junk Kouture is delighted to launch the Junk Kouture Recycled Fashion Competition 2013 in association with the European Recycling Platform (ERP), a national platform which gives young, expressive designers the opportunity to work with various junk materials with a view to creating a striking dress design and an impressive work of art. ERP, Ireland's only pan-European compliance scheme for electrical and electronic waste and waste battery recycling is delighted to continue their involvement with the competition and educate students on the importance of sustainability, while giving them an outlet for their creativity.
This year, forget Paris and Milan as the fashion capitals of the world, as trend setting designers in schools across the country put Ireland on the style map and take the fashion world by storm, while promoting sustainability at the same time! Junk Kouture Recycled Fashion Competition 2013 is open to all second level students who think they've got what it takes to create something stylish and outrageous with junk and already used materials. Think recycled milk cartons, old phone chargers and plastic bin liners - and the next generation of designers might just find they've got the makings of a high couture ensemble already at their fingertips. Remember, each creation must incorporate an item of electrical waste with a special prize awarded for its most inspired and creative use. Jean Paul Gaultier...Stella McCartney...Vera Wang... - it's time to step aside!!
