Junk Kouture Climate Week NYC

This fireside-style conversation will feature Troy Armour (CEO, Junk Kouture), Anne Whiting (Founder, Anne James New York) and Reza Cristian (Editor-in-Chief, SUSTAIN The Mag), as they discuss how circular practices such as thrifting and upcycling, as well as the principles of programs such as Junk Kouture, can help young people positively influence future generations with their fashion choices.

There will also be an opportunity for a Q&A with both guests, and a chance to see up-close a number of Junk Kouture creations – designs made completely from recycled waste.

ALL ABOUT JUNK KOUTURE

The 2023 competition is open to all post-primary students aged 13 – 18 across New York. 

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!

this one is for the teachers and educators!
