Sixth Form Student, Amie Green’s entry ‘Kasoflutter’ has been chosen to go through to the Regional Finals of Junk Kouture 2013. Junk Kouture is a competition which highlights the creative skills of secondary school students who are required to produce a fashion garment from recycled materials. The Regional Final will take place in the Millennium forum on Friday the 8th March 2013 at 7pm.
“Kasoflutter is a dress inspired by Aime. The essence of adventure and ideas of fantasy are conveyed through a dreamy, flowing and floating effect. “The Trash Kouture project has inspired me to create this dress from very common disposable materials. Using heat I have found a method of fusing recycled plastic bags, which will metamorphose into a shimmering transient experience for the wearer which mirrors the conversion of a caterpillar into a butterfly. Our ‘Butterfly Effect’ also hints at how one small change can influence a transformation in our whole world attitude towards recycling.” Amie Green Year 13
Good Luck Amie! Go New-Bridge
