Three St. Leo’s Transition Year students are exploring their creative talents as they work to design an outfit for submission as part of the Junk Kouture competition. This nationwide competition aims to spark students’ imaginations; encouraging them to create unique, original and innovative outfits from 100% recycled materials hence every outfit is unique. They began working on the outfit before Christmas, with a very different initial idea. Over time however, their idea developed and changed. The top of the costume was created with cardboard, pheasant feathers and scrap material donated from local tailors. The skirt is composed of many pheasant feathers at the back, and the front with copper wire from electrical cord and shredded brillo pads. Watch out on various social media platforms for the opportunity to give them your vote over the coming weeks. With the first round of the competition depending entirely on the public vote, your support would be greatly appreciated.
