Creative students from Our Lady’s Bower Athlone, St Joseph’s College, Athlone, and Moate Community School will take to Ireland’s most prestigious stage, the O2, to showcase their couture trash creations in the Junk Kouture Grand Final 2014 next Friday May 2.
Our Lady’s Bower finalists include ‘Queen Tea’, ‘Tree of a Kind’, ‘Ein de Cleite’, ‘Venus’, ‘Recircuitable’, ‘Wallflower’, and ‘Fire Ahead’. ‘On Your Bike’ will represent St Joseph’s College, Athlone, and ‘Bellatrix’, ‘Intertwine’, and ‘GlassAct’ from Moate Community School will also strut their stuff to impress the judges on May 2.
The Junk Kouture Grand Final, which was due to be held in the Bord Gais Energy Theatre, sold out in a record five hours at the beginning of April leaving thousands of students, parents, and teachers disappointed. The change of venue ensures that 2,000 additional tickets are available through Ticketmaster.
Organiser and founder Elizabeth Curran said, “We were absolutely delighted when the Grand Final sold out in five hours and astounded that there was still such a huge demand for tickets. This is obviously down to the increased participation this year and popularity of the event. We are truly delighted that we will now be showcasing the finest young Irish designers in Ireland’s biggest venue.”
All details for the Junk Kouture Grand Final, proudly supported by Bank of Ireland and the European Recycling Platform (ERP ), will remain the same apart from the location. Promoters are urging people to purchase tickets as soon as they can. All tickets that have been purchased for the previous venue will still be valid for the event.
