Local girl Stephanie Thompson and her two classmates, Kate McCauley and Patricia Margey are through to the Junk Kouture finals due to be held in early May in Dublin.
Junk Kouture is a national competition for second level students in Ireland and Northern Ireland which challenges teenagers to create high-end wearable fashion 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 for the good of the planet. In the last three years, Junk Kouture has established itself as the premier fashion competition for teenagers throughout Ireland.
The three Moville Community College students and their teacher Niamh Hegarty must surely be delighted with their regional success. Last Friday night Stephanie modeled the dress, shoes and hat which the three of them had compiled from egg cartons! The creation is better known as ‘eggstravagant’!Junk Kouture
A lot of hard work had certainly gone into this production and an amazing ensemble is the outcome. Clearly the judges at the Millenium Forum in Derry could see the dedication and work that was put into this. All entries were on a par and outstanding results were displayed on the catwalk last Friday night.Stephanie Thompson
But Stephanie and her friends clearly shone and along with a selection of others are now through to the finals in Dublin. Here’s wishing Stephanie, Kate and Patricia the very best of luck in May!
