Best of luck to our TY fashion design teams with their entries for the 2022 Junk Kouture competition. This years entrants have worked tirelessly to re-imagine and re-fashion everyday waste items. Transforming cans, cartons, bags, sweet wrappers, wipes and packaging into abstract three-dimensional motifs, the designers developed novel textile elements to arrive at their design solutions. Special thanks to Mr Williams who mentored the entries.
