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.
Local girl, Stephanie Thompson from Muff, will be modelling the ‘eggstravagant’ outfit which she and her two friends, Kate McCauley and Patricia Margey have created for this years Junk Kouture. The girls won through from the regionals last month and are now set to take the stage in Dublin on Friday 2nd May. Muffs Stephanie will once more be dawning the catwalk with the dress, shoes and hat which the three of them had compiled from egg cartons! The creation is better known as ‘eggstravagant’!
However the girls now need YOUR vote. Voting lines opened this morning at 9am and remain so until Friday April 25th. It’s paramount that the local community get behind the girls and get the votes registered. Last year at the Junk Kouture final, the judges were unable to make a decision and so the vote was given over to the public. It’s possible that this year could be a repeat. Therefore these girls need to get as many votes registered NOW.

This is not only supporting Stephanie, Kate and Patricia, but the whole community and in particular Moville Community College.
