Junk Kouture Final 2015

The final of the Junk Kouture fashion competition took place last Friday 24th April. Eighty students donned their creations taking the 3 Arena stage by storm in the show hosted by Xposé's Glenda Gilson. Five dresses from our school's entries got through to the prestige final. It was judged by four judges, including Louis Walsh. 

After months of hard work and dedication, the girls' creations stormed the catwalk and were seen by thousands in the audience. Around fourty TY students went to support the girls on the big night. We couldn't believe the final products, they were so impressive! After much consideration and anticipation, our school's entries were awarded two distinguished and coveted awards! 'Queen of the Forest' by Aurika Syribu, Ruth Moore and Caoimhe Mackey was awarded best hair and makeup. 'Building Blocks' by Aideen Rafferty and Siobhan McCormack was crowned the winner in the Eastern Region! Both designs were without a doubt very deserving winners and blew us all away. All entries from our school were amazing and a huge congratulations to all the teams who took part!

Aideen Rafferty of 'Building Blocks' even got the opportunity to appear on RTE's Saturday Night Show with Brendan O'Connor modelling their dress, while Siobhan watched from backstage! It was a great experience for everyone involved and they made all the supporters and teachers proud as they represented the school so well!
