Two Portlaoise entries selected for Junk Kouture Grand Final

All the South Eastern region winners including two from Scoil Chríost Rí.

Two stunning entries from a Portlaoise school are through to the Junk Kouture 2020 grand final.

The entries are from Scoil Chríost Rí girls school.

Peace Unfolds is made from non-recyclable art folders, created by team Sarah Tuohy (model), Elise Finn and Gráinne McCaul.

Canine99 is by Abbie Cummins, Jade Laffan (model) and Alex Wright and highlights animal abuse, with the outfit partly made from real dog hair.

Twelve entries from Laois schools made it to the regional final held on Tuesday night March 3 in The Helix in Dublin. See them all here. 

The final is in the 3Arena on Thursday April 30, with RTÉ now on board as Junk Kouture partner. 

RTÉ 2FM’s podcast queens, Laura Fox and Emma Power, hosts of popular Unlocked with Laura and Emma, are presenting the Junk Kouture regional events and grand finale, while RTÉ 2FM DJ, Tara Stewart will provide the party atmosphere on the night, unleashing her musical prowess on the decks and on stage at 3Arena.

The Portlaoise school has congratulated their students.
