Three TY students have produced an entry for Junk Kouture this year. Junk Kouture is a nationwide fashion competition that promotes environmental sustainability. All of the entries must be created from recycled materials. Florence, Alannah and Laura’s creation titled “Mielikki” is named after the Goddess of Forests. The outfit is inspired by birds and is made from paper and card waste from the art room; the very material produced through deforestation.
Deforestation has had a devastating effect on the population of birds. Mielikki is a fierce warrior protecting their habitat. Wishing the girls all the best that “Mielikki” gets through to the live shows and down that catwalk!
