Offaly design leading in Junk Kouture voting but they still need your support

A fantastic Offaly design is currently leading the public vote in the Grand Final of Junk Kouture. 

The brilliantly named '2B or not 2B' is the creation of Sacred Heart School students Niamh Conroy, Aoife Kavanagh and Rose Dunne. It is made almost entirely of pencil parings and has certainly caught the imagination of the voting public. 

At the time of writing, it has 6,630 votes, just narrowly ahead of the second place design however that gap is closing. 

Today is 'Super Friday' for voting and you can click here to vote for the Offaly design. 

The Grand Final takes place on Thursday May 2nd at the 3Arena, Dublin. Bank of Irleand Fun in the Foyer starts at 3pm and the live show starts at 7pm. The public vote is worth 10% of the marks which is then added to the overall scores at the live Grand Final show.

Bank of Ireland Junk Kouture is an all island competition for secondary school students which takes elements such as fashion, design, engineering and environmental sustainability and transforms them into a creative contest like no other.

Inspiring young designers in second level education to use everyday junk materials to create striking works of wearable art, the competition calls on all budding fashionistas to see if they have what it takes to be crowned King or Queen of the upcycled catwalk.
