West Kerry student wins top honours for creative recycled fashion design

A west Kerry student has taken top honours in a fashion competition that promotes recycling.

Maxim O Suilleabhain, who is a student at Pobalscoil Chorca Dhuibhne, qualified for the Junk Kouture final at the 3Arena in Dublin with his costume made from items he found in the family cinema.

The design included discarded film reels, DVDs and videotape from the Phoenix Cinema.

Junk Kouture challenges students to design clothing made from material that is no longer of use.
