Held at Etihad Arena, Abu Dhabi, the first ever Junk Kouture World Final saw 53 incredible designs battle it out to be crowned World Designer of the Year 2022. All designs were created from recycled couture pieces, all conceived, crafted and modelled by eco-conscious student teams from the UAE, France, Italy, Ireland, Britain, and USA.
This design is a futuristic coat of armour. Our planet is on the brink. The risk is real. If we continue to consume and power our lives the way we do now then our forests, oceans and weather systems will collapse. We need to go back in time and live sustainably and reconnect with our planet in order to have a future. If not then it is survival of the fittest for the food we eat, the water we drink and the very air we breathe.
Made from an old laundry basket, lens from a broken pair of sunglasses, old wipers, old chip pan, old shower mat, old rucksack, wire tubing, an old aerial and scrap sheets of aluminium.
