JUNK KOUTURE X NCBIS CULTURE NIGHT

Junk Kouture is delighted to announce a collaboration with NCBI for the 2022–2023 competition cycle here in Ireland. The collaboration will feature various activities throughout the academic year giving JK designers and alumni the opportunity to get involved in showcasing their recycled couture designs to their local community and to the wider Junk Kouture community online.

CULTURE NIGHT 2022 | SEPT 23

Culture Night / Oíche Chultúir is a national moment, celebrating all that makes up the richness and diversity of Culture in Ireland today, connecting people to cultural activities locally and nationally, and aims to open up pathways to ongoing engagement. An annual, all-island public event that takes place each year on the third Friday of September, Culture Night / Oíche Chultúir celebrates culture, creativity, and the arts and seeks to actively promote the belief that this rich and varied culture is alive, treasured, and nurtured in people’s lives, today and every day.

For this, Junk Kouture alumni from across Ireland have teamed up with their local NCBI stores for a window takeover, a celebration of creativity, design, and sustainability. Past Junk Kouture designs will be on display from Sep 23 until Oct 03. Why not visit your local store, snap a picture of the design and tag us on socials @junkkouture #JunkKoutureNCBICultureNight22

THE BRIEF

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!
