The brilliant 25-year-old entrepreneur showcased the ‘rubbish’ dresses created through her venture Junk Kouture which aims to encourage children to recycle.
The Junk Kouture initiative get students to create dresses from recyclables.
Elizabeth’s company, who is sponsored by the European Recycling Platform (ERP) brought models Ellen Connolly, Co Louth and Jenny Boyd, Co Kildare to showcase the dresses at the “Hugo” premiere.
Elizabeth received the invitation to the premiere “out of the blue” after the successful publicity she received for the first two Junk Kouture schools’ competitions.
The first dress was created by Aisling McCallion, Niamh McDonald and Stephen McLaughlin, students from Carndonagh Community School. The dress was created using CDs, magazines and paper.
The second dress was made by model Jenny Boyd and was created using newspapers and magazines.
The Buncrana woman said she was delighted at the responses the dresses received on the red carpet…and meeting the stars from the movie (pictured).
“It was a fantastic brilliant night. The girls got a huge reaction on the red carpet and people were astonished by the designs,” she said.
“It was super for Junk Kouture to be at the premiere and the reaction to two dresses made from recycled materials, shows that recycled fashion can wow even the hardest of crowds.”
