Davis designs to take world stage

McIntosh High senior Chloe Davis is ready to take the design world by storm as an American finalist in the Junk Kouture International recycled fashion competition.

Chloe’s dress design uses mostly foam packing material and broken glass that she sanded down piece-by-piece. She will take her design to the world finals in London this October.

Junk Kouture is a worldwide fashion competition open to 13-18-year-olds and challenges young people to design, upcycle, and create high-end fashion from recycled junk, before showcasing their design and representing their school on stages across the world.

Founded in Ireland in 2010, the competition has recruited 100,000 participants to date, produced 15,000 distinctive designs, saved 40,000kg of waste from landfill, and amazed packed crowds at 60 sold-out arena shows.
