Leading the charge on incredibly glam sustainability, and now in its 10th year, Junk Kouture has been challenging post-primary school students across the country to create high-end designs from junk.

Incorporating elements of environmental sustainability, fashion, art, design, and engineering, Junk Kouture annually showcases aspiring designers aged 12 – 18-years from across Ireland as they rise to the challenge to create wearable fashion - the golden rule being that everything used must be 100% recycled.

Now fashion fans can tune in for a week of design, creativity and performance on the Junk Kouture YouTube channel.

The judges have had their say and students will now take the next steps towards Junk Kouture glory during the Irish Regional Finals which will be broadcast over five days on the Junk Kouture YouTube channel using videos and imagery submitted by students with their application earlier this year.

The line-up for each regional final broadcast on @junkkouture YouTube channel:

At the end of the week's episodes, there will be a special announcement show on Sunday 27th June at 7pm also airing on the Junk Kouture YouTube channel, where seven designs from each region will be chosen as Junk Kouture Ireland, 2021 Grand Finalists by the judging panel.

While it has been a challenging year for everyone, there has been no shortage of enthusiasm and extraordinary design talent among this year’s Junk Kouture, Ireland students – it is sure to be another fantastic year of creativity and sustainability!
