Zuzanna needs your votes to make Junk Kouture final

AN OLD Bawn Community School student could make it to the world final of the Junk Kouture competition – but needs your votes to make it happen.

Junk Kouture tasks post-primary pupils with creating high-end designs and then creating them using 100 per cent recycled materials.

Zuzanna Cieslewicz, 16, from Belgard, created ‘Ex Static’ using a variety of materials, such as insulation foam, plastic shopping bags which she crocheted into gloves and wire which she used to make a corset.

The other features of her design include attention-grabbing platform boots, consisting of 40 layers of insulation foam in each boot to create the platform, which were then sealed with thick electrical tape.

Vote for Zuzanna, before midnight on Thursday, June 2

The talented young creative recently made it to the All-Ireland final of Junk Kouture, but unfortunately wasn’t selected as one of the nine on the night who will now go to the world final in Abu Dhabi.

However, Zuzanna’s still in with a chance of reaching the world final as she’s been selected as the ‘wild card’ for the eastern region of the country – and is now relying on public votes to give her the chance to compete on the world stage with her innovative creation.

Votes are now being accepted on the RTE website HERE until midnight on Thursday, June 2.

To vote for Zuzanna, select Junk Kouture Wild Card East: Ex Static to cast your vote.
