New-Bridge Art student Beth McDaniel, pictured in her creation ‘Lady Fibonacci’ was presented with the golden ticket to the Grand Final of Junk Kouture. James Kavanagh, one of Ireland’s biggest snapchat stars and social media influencers, arrived in New-Bridge Integrated College to present Beth with her dream opportunity!
Thousands of students from all over Ireland have competed for a place in the final. Beth is the BOI Northern Wildcard winner, one of twenty students from the Northern Region Finals to make it to the 3Arena. The all island final will take place on April 27th in the 3Arena, Dublin.
Junk Kouture is a national contest which encourages young designers in second level education to create striking couture designs and impressive works of wearable art from everyday junk that would normally find its way into the bin. Junk Kouture aims to inspire and ignite passion in these teenagers while at the same time subtly educating them about the importance of recycling and reusing waste. Over the last six years, Junk Kouture has established itself as the premier recycled fashion competition for teenagers throughout Ireland and Northern Ireland and in 2015 extended it’s creative platform to Scotland.
