Junk Kouture 2018
All in Coláiste Phobal Ros Cré are very proud of 3 of our Transition Year students who represented the Coláiste in the Regional finals of Junk Kouture 2018. in U.L on Friday the 9th of March. Their design ‘An Lί Ban’ originating from an Irish Celtic Water Goddess was made using simply plastic water bottles.
The team of Niamh Geraghty, Tiffany O’Riordan (Model) and Fiona Scully, decided it would be a good idea to use recycled water bottles as it is an everyday recyclable in their school. They felt that plastic is often seen as a negative material in our environment. The aim of their dress ‘An Lί Ban’ was to show the beauty in the material when recycled correctly.
The girls started in early September brainstorming and constantly adding new ideas to their dress. Water bottles were sourced from bins around the school and community. The girls spent weeks cutting bottles into the shape of flowers and using old spray paint from our art department to give the flowers beautiful colour, stapling and weaving labels together and hot gluing bottle caps.
Their dress looked stunning on Friday night and Tiffany modelled the dress like a pro. Unfortunately, ‘Lí Ban’ did not qualify for the next round of the competition but the girls did Coláiste Phobal Ros Cré proud.
Niamh, Tiffany and Fiona would like to thank everybody for their support with their design. They believe that it has been the an amazing and rewarding experience and they would recommend it to every school to get involved. The girls would like to thank their teachers Ms Stanley, Ms McDonnell, Ms Saliba, Ms Dempsey, Ms Mulrooney and Mr O’Connor for all their continuous support throughout the project.
