Junk Kouture Leinster Regional Final

There was great excitement in Maryfield on Friday 13th of February when Emer Lorenz of Fourth Year had a surprise visit from the manager of Bank of Ireland, Marino who came to present Emer, in the middle of musical rehearsals, with a Silver ticket – her entry into the Junk Kouture Leinster regional final!

Junk Kouture is a national competition for second level students, challenging them to create high-end wearable fashion from everyday junk that would normally find its way into the bin.
The dress which Emer made is made from dried teabags and a cardboard tea box and is accessorised with a hat made from doilies. Emer will need your votes on Facebook- we will be giving the link here shortly!
