Witness all the innovation and giddy fashion heights at the Bank of Ireland Junk Kouture Grand Final - the event where rubbish becomes runway ready.

Witness all the innovation and giddy fashion heights at the Bank of Ireland Junk Kouture Grand Final - the event where rubbish becomes runway ready.

A national contest for aspiring designers in second level education, the Bank of Ireland Junk Kouture has been inspiring and encouraging young creatives with a keen eye for fashion for the past seven years. Launched annually in September, the series of challenges to create a wearable couture design from items that would normally end up in the bin all lead to one place: the Grand Final.

Of hundreds of submissions from all over Ireland, only 20 will be heading for the catwalk at the 3Arena in April, and you don't want to miss your chance to see all the creativity and craft live in action before a panel of distinguished judges including Louis Walsh, Pippa O'Connor, Jane Leavey and more.

2017's show was the biggest and best yet, and with up to €2,500 in cash prizes and a shot at the fashion big time at stake, the excitement will be off the hanger.
