Rubbish deadline looms 15.01.13

SECONDARY school students have only a couple of weeks to come up with rubbish designs for this year's Junk Kouture Recycled Fashion competition. The deadline is Thursday, January 31 and young creatives are being urged to turn industrial, electrical, commercial and domestic waste products into pieces of fashion art.
Buncrana's Orla O’Hagan reached the grand final last year with her Battle of the Sexes design made from metal, leather and wire among other things. Orla, a pupil at Scoil Mhuire, is entering again this year but her latest creation is a "closely guarded secret", say the organisers.
A design from Buncrana student Orla O'Hagan that reached the Junk Kouture final in 2012.
Competition founder, Elizabeth O’Donnell, said: “We’re always intrigued to know just what the students will come up with at the competition’s regional heats, but we’ve been really blown away at the standard and levels of creativity as well as the cool things which these kids have done with other people’s junk. I imagine 2013 will be no different so we’re really looking forward to working with schools right across Northern Ireland to bring junk back to a very fashionable life." It's easy and free to enter. Registration opens on January 20 and and closes on January 31. Judges this year include Donegal supermodel Faye Dinsmore.
