There is now a new way to enter into one of the most creative fashion shows in the country.
Junk Kouture is Ireland’s leading fashion and art competition for secondary school students.
For the first time this year, sponsors Bank of Ireland have added another dimension to the competition with the launch of a new App, which students can use to enter the competition. The new app will also be used when voting opens.
Students can upload their design to the app before registration closes on the 22nd of January. The judging panel will then reveal who gets through to the regional finals on the 8th of February.
All designs selected for the regional finals are picked by a panel of judges, however this year, the public will be able to vote for their favourite using the app.
This means one extra student from each of the regions will make it to the next round of Junk Kouture 2018.
Voting will take place through the Junk Kouture App from 12-16th February and winners will be announced on 17th February.
Last year saw a record number of applicants with over 1,300 designs entered which were whittled down to just 80 for the grand final in the 3Arena.
This year the final takes place 19th April 2018.
