Moate Community School Junk Kouture Finalists 2020

March 16th was regional day for Jk 2020……..that day seems like a lifetime ago as Corona Virus took over the world.

The Final was due to happen in May and as Moate had three dresses through to the final there was great excitement on strutting their stuff in the 3Arena to an audience packed with screaming teenagers, but alas this was now not going to happen a new plan was needed.

Our three dresses are “Burden of Privilege” Claire Conlon (Model) and Hazel Kelly

“Blinded by Perfection” Caoimhe Lowry (model) Grainne Geoghegan and Erin Hickey

“Just My Impression” Cara Greville model and creator

Junk Kouture decided that if the Final couldn’t happen in the usual way, well then, a new and equally spectacular way was needed…. this New Way would mean that each of the five regions would be filmed by RTE at a specular location, our location being Gloster House Birr, the 300-year-old Georgian Country House.

So, on Tuesday November 24th the three teams and their teacher headed to Gloster House for their time slot to be filmed by the RTE film crew.

The new plan is to broadcast the Final on the RTE player before Christmas where the 80 finalists from the five regions will compete to be crowned Junk Kouture Winner 2020.
