Castleisland Community College Transition Year students, Lucy Setterfield and Ruth Borgeat have reached the regional finals of the Bank of Ireland Junk Kouture recycled fashion competition in UCH Limerick on March 9th.
There, they will have 60 seconds to impress the judges on the catwalk.
Importance of Recycling
Bank of Ireland Junk Kouture is a national competition which aims to educate teenagers on the importance of recycling as the competition only allows the use of recyclable items that might otherwise be thrown in the bin.
Castleisland Community College is through to the next round with its entry entitled ‘Metallic Attraction.’
The students used a variety of recyclable items including old curtain lining, cans, a broken mirror and old necklaces to create their magnificent creation.
Time and Patience
Considerable amounts of time and patience has gone into the design with the help of their art teacher Pia Thornton and their metalwork teacher, Jacinta Buckley.
The public can vote online until the February 23rd. This element of the competition is worth 10% of the overall marks received at the regional final.
You can find the link to vote on the Castleisland Community College Facebook page.
