From garbage to glamour, students reach finals of Junk Kouture

Hayley O'Connor models the girls' 'Frozen Fairytale' creation.

Three budding designers from Dunshaughlin Community College have made it to the finals of the 'Junk Kouture' fashion competition, sponsored by the European Recycling Platform.

Transition Year students Louise Byrne, Hayley O Connor and Sinead Jerromes design a stunning dress themed on the Disney movie Frozen.

The competition requires designers to work with recyclable materials to create their garments.

Along with designing the dress, the group is choreographing a 90sec piece to the music of Frozen, which they will present at the regional final in The Helix on 11th March.

Part of the judging is based on public vote, which is open until the end of the day Friday, 28th February. Go to www.junkkouture.com and you will be directed to a Facebook page where you can place your vote and support the girls. They are in the West Region for voting.
