PARIS CITY FINAL HAS BEEN postponed – new dates to be confirmed
Due to unforeseen circumstances, involving a number of positive Covid-19 cases across our touring team, we have had to make the difficult decision to postpone our upcoming show in Paris set to take place on 25 May 2022.
This difficult decision was made out of an abundance of caution to protect our touring personnel, the Junk Kouture participants and attendees.
We will re-engage with all of our partners and participants in the coming weeks to determine the rescheduling, timing and format of these events later in the year. Our live World Final will go ahead as planned, and we will confirm all new dates once we have worked through availability and scheduling.
We remain committed to the delivery of our City Finals in each market, and we thank everyone who has worked with us up until this point and look forward to seeing you at the re-scheduled events, celebrating the work of creative young people across each location.

MEET A JK CREATOR FROM PARIS!
Milene is a final year student at ICS Paris. She entered the 2021 Junk Kouture Competition and has made it to the Grand Final which will be aired on National Television towards the end of the year. Milene is naturally quite shy and does not like being the focus of people’s attention. However, her creative talents have certainly grabbed the attention of so many over the past couple of months. Milene has always enjoyed upcycling her own clothes and adding new details to them to make them feel like new. She wanted to challenge herself and push this hobby to the next level. This is when she decided to take part in the Junk Kouture competition. READ MORE >

Using only repurposed materials her entry, linked to the 1920’s swing movement, has already impressed the Junk Kouture representatives, so we are looking forward to seeing how she does in the competition.
