Junk Kouture is the world’s largest youth sustainable fashion competition, encouraging young designers between the ages of 13 and 18 to create incredible outfits using recycled materials. Now in its 10th year, Junk Kouture has expanded into a worldwide affair with shows scheduled for Paris, Milan, London and UAE.
The Irish leg of the show is sponsored by RTE, with another avenue taking up the production duties. We produced, filmed and edited the Dublin final – making an hour length feature special that was broadcast in May 2022. Having worked on this project in many of the previous years we had an idea what to expect but we were surprised and delighted with the scale, scope and quality of this years competition. With 60 finalists from every corner of the country, the event turned out to be energetic, colourful, hectic and fun all at the same time.
The video shows a small highlight of the event. The winners from the Dublin show will go on to represent Ireland at the world final in UAE.
