The above dress “Paper Vogue” was designed and made by three students, Chloe Roan, Joanne Colhoun and Elaine Page from the Deele College Raphoe.
The three students have worked very hard at the designing and making of this dress. There have been many tears and lots of quitting but there has also been lots of laughter and fun. The girls hope that this hard work will pay off at the regional finals in Belfast on Sunday. To vote for your dresses please log onto www.junkkouture.com and scroll through the pictures.
Below are four stunning dresses submitted for the same final by students from Errigal College.

This beautiful strapless gown is every brides dream. The gown has fitted ruched bodice in a floral arrangement. The floral arrangement gathers the skirt, drawing attention to the long elegant train.

Costume 2 Queen of Hearts, —— Model Letitia Spratt; Designers Letitia Spratt, Shannon Hayes & Mary Gibbons
This Alice in Wonderland dress is made from heavy dustbin bags. The heavy plastic was shaped into fans and these were layered around to form the skirt. The bodice was also made from heavy duty plastic, with queen of heart card detail added down the front and repeated on the skirt. Detail was applied by edging with CD’s. The hat and bow were exaggerated for the “Mad Hatters Tea Party”. Other materials used: cardboard, wire and netting.
Costume 3 Military Cyborg, —– Model Zak Kildea; Designers Zak Kildea, Ryan Spencer, Joe Quill
The concept behind this costume stems from the terminator and the military style uniform. Its base is an old tailored suit, cut and re-shaped. The military detail is added using yellow rope. The costume has rope detail and jacket (coat), trousers and hat. The robotic look was added using coloured electrical wire and circuit boards. The robotic mask was made from med roc and designed using cut circuit boards layered in a collage style. The suit was painted with acrylic camouflage style.Tags:
