THERE was great excitement in Coláiste Bríde recently when the school held two showcase events to highlight its entries into this year’s Junk Kouture competition.
There are 121 Transition Year students in the school and the majority of them were involved in the Junk Kouture programme, with a small number of students opting instead to participate in the YSI (Young Social Innovators) module.
The school held a fashion show at 2 p.m. for the student body in the school and that evening around 500 parent and grandparents gathered in the school to view the dresses. It was the first time since lockdown that the school was able to hold the evening event and that added to the excitement for everyone involved. A spokesperson said the turnout for the evening show was fantastic and she complimented the students involved in designing and creating the various outfits. The reception they received highlighted the appreciation of the those in attendance for the students and the work they put into their stunning pieces.
Prizes were awarded on the day and all 28 dresses created have been entered into this year’s Junk Kouture. It's hoped some of them will make it through to the regional final which will take place in Dublin on March 9.
