What is Junk Kouture?
Junk Kouture is a fashion competition using recycled materials, which challenges young people to design, create and model high end couture from everyday junk! It’s been running for 10 years and is one of the premier calendar events in Ireland. For instance, Louis Walsh is a big supporter and is one of judges in the Grand Final.
Background to Kiera’s Dress
So the dress needs to be made entirely from junk. What Kiera did was salvaged leather the car seats from old Jaguar cars, from the Overton scrapyard in Dyce. She spent 3 months making her dress, and she’s there’s only one other girl from Scotland who’s qualified for the regional finals. She’ll be showcasing the dress on 27th Feb at the live event, with the 70 other qualifiers, in the largest theatre in Ireland.
