What is JK?

Junk Kouture 2020 is open to all pupils who are enrolled in second level education in either Republic of Ireland, Northern Ireland and Scotland in the school year 2019/2020.

Inspiring young designers in second level education to use everyday junk materials to create striking works of wearable art, the competition calls on all budding fashionistas to see if they have what it takes to be crowned King or Queen of the up-cycled catwalk.

Hitting its 10th year running, Junk Kouture has already captivated over 24,000 students, 7,000 teachers and 100,000 audience members.
