WHAT IS JUNK KOUTURE?

Junk Kouture is a global platform to unleash the creative brilliance of young people. One way it does this, is through a fashion competition which challenges the world’s most talented emerging designers, engineers, artists and performers to envision, create and model high end couture from everyday junk!

Enrich and empower the lives of young people through creativity and sustainability.
