What is BOIJK?

Bank of Ireland Junk Kouture 2019 is open to all pupils who are enrolled in second level education in either Northern Ireland or the Republic of Ireland in the school year 2018/19.

Bank of Ireland Junk Kouture is an all island competition for secondary school students which takes elements such as fashion, design, engineering and environmental sustainability and transforms them into a creative contest like no other.

Inspiring young designers in second level education to use everyday junk materials to create striking works of wearable art, the competition calls on all budding fashionistas to see if they have what it takes to be crowned King or Queen of the upcycled catwalk.

Hitting its ninth year running, Bank of Ireland Junk Kouture has already captivated over 24,000 students, 7,000 teachers and 100,000 audience members.
