Junk Kouture Finalist 2018

After enjoying extensive success with our biggest ever final last year in the 3Arena, we’re impatiently awaiting our 2019 events and we want you to be part of the fun and magic of this year’s competition.

Bank of Ireland Junk Kouture’s online entry portal for students doesn’t open until the 7th of January 2019, giving you invaluable time to organise your team and fine tune your design before entering your unique creation on app.junkkouture.com.

The Brief

In short, the whole idea of Bank of Ireland Junk Kouture is to create striking works of recycled couture that wouldn’t look out of place on the world’s most famous runways. Your design can be crafted into any style of wear, from modern to male, to high fashion and feminine.
However, THE MOST IMPORTANT RULE is that it’s made from 100% recycled materials which have out lived their intended purpose.
