Carndonagh Community School, Co. Donegal
The design represents the arts community during Covid-19 and how artists and writers have overcome the obstacles they have been faced with. The use of butterflies symbolizes how we came out of the wrapping, and the flowers symbolize our growth during these difficult times. Their inspiration came from Moschino’s Spring 2018 Flower Dress runway show.
Materials Used: They included recycled music sheets pleated to make the skirt and flowers in our dress. It was used recycled Irish textbooks to make flowers to mirror how much impact the rose had on Irish history. The team made butterflies from old books. The train of the dress is made from reused curtain netting. They incorporated color by spray painting fake flowers and leaves from past art projects. A pair of shoes from previous Junk Kouture projects were redesigned.
