The Peace Unfolds creation by a Scoil Chríost Rí team in Portlaoise
A Laois school has won a top award at the prestigious Junk Kouture fashion competition.
Scoil Chríost Rí in Portlaoise has scooped one of the top prizes.
The design called Peace Unfolds was created by a team of Transition year students, Elise Finn, Gráinne McCaul and Sarah Tuohy.
They won the Junk Kouture Enterprise Award 2020 sponsored by @bright_Ireland. This prize is awarded to the team who have promoted and canvassed for support across social media and in their community.
The school had two finalists, the other being Canine-99.
The school has congratulated their students in a tweet.

The final was televised on RTÉ2 on Thursday night for the first time.
Normally held as an exciting live music fashion show in the 3Arena, instead each entrant sent a video of their model showing their gowns which must all be made from recycled materials.
The show is available to download and watch from the Junk Kouture website here.
