Coventry UK City of Culture
A SUSTAINABLE FASHION PROGRAMME FOR YOUNG PEOPLE
Coventry City of Culture Trust and Junk Kouture have teamed up to create a Sustainable Fashion competition for local schools, that will culminate in runway shows as part of Coventry UK City of Culture. Junk Kouture offers educators a range of resources to introduce the programme into their classroom with ease. From JK Junior Guides to masterclasses – there is something for all ages!
Coventry City of Culture Trust and Junk Kouture have teamed up and are delighted to bring their programme to you. For secondary schools, the Coventry competition feeds into a wider national Junk Kouture competition that is open to Year 9 upwards. For primary schools, the competition in Coventry is specific for Yr 4 upwards and supported by the Junk Kouture Junior pack.
Look around you and get creative! Everywhere you see waste, there is opportunity! Recycled materials tell stories, and also make for fabulous fashion and bring creativity to life! A design can be crafted into any style of wear- from glamour to theatrical. The only really important rule is that your deign is made from 100% recycled materials! Be brave, take chances, experiment, and push the boundaries! We vision a cleaner and more sustainable environment. Show us your dreams of the future, show us these through design.

JK Junior is an inclusive event, and one which you can hold in your primary school. This pack provides the guidelines, tips and tricks to encourage teachers and students to host an in-house event, where kids can create outfits and showcase their masterpieces to family and peers in the school environment. The event could be used as an end of term celebration or as a school fund-raiser.
By introducing JK Junior to primary school students, we are aiming to help educate them on the importance of a sustainable environment. By showing them how this can be translated through such a creative process, it is our hope that the skills learned during this process will stick with them for life, but that what they learn will help shape their futures.
