Congratulations to the 2021 Enterprise Award Winner in the Grand Final - Alarming Twists. Well done to the Laois team of Ellen, Fial and Chloe on all your hard work during this year's competition which featured entries from all around Ireland from students who turn junk into fashion!

The students stripped down old alarm cables and use the wire inside to crochet trousers and flowers for the cape. They stripped copper wire and plaited it to design the shoes, tie the cape together and crochet the necklace.

The team sourced old plastic bags and used them for the top. Plastic bottles were used for the headpiece.
