Congratulations to some of the students from Wilson's Hospital School who entered the ‘Junk Kouture’ Recycled Fashion Show competition. They qualified for the semi-finals of this competition with their exciting design. For this competition students are asked to create art that can be worn in the form of original, exciting and stylish outfits in Junk Kouture style. They must use recycled materials and re-work them in to high-end couture fashion.
Every weekend, a group of boarder pupils take part in an Arts and Crafts session taught by Justyna Byrne. They decided this year to enter the competition and in October 2010 they started work on their creation. 1,019 entries were received from all over Ireland, with only 250 being selected to participate in the All-Ireland semi-finals held in the Hudson Bay Hotel, Athlone on 27th March 2011. Ana and Macarena were the designers of this dress which is modelled here by Pilar. The group represented the school and themselves very well in the semi-finals but unfortunately did not make it through to the finals. It was a great experience for them all. Well done!
