Junk Kouture is back and they have a brand-new judge for 2022!
Singer Soulé is joining Louis Walsh and Roz Purcell as the third judge for this year’s fashion competition.
In a new twist this year, the Top 10 designs from the Dublin City Final, Powered by RTÉ, will compete in the first ever Junk Kouture world final, which takes place in an exciting new location yet to be announced. Those 10 designs will then compete against 50 other designs – 10 from each of Junk Kouture’s other city finals in their five new territories: London, Paris, Milan, New York and Abu Dhabi.
At the World Final, there will be six individual City Designer Awards plus the first ever Junk Kouture World Designer of the Year!
What an exciting opportunity!
Speaking about being a part of the competition Soulé said, “I am so excited to join the Junk Kouture judging panel for the Dublin City Final 2022! As a singer, I know that both your performance and fashion choices play a big role in helping you to be memorable on stage.
“I will be on the hunt for young designers who give 110% to their performance and channel their inner Lady Gaga, who has made so many fashion statements throughout her singing and acting career!
“Watching the regional finals last week, I could see the standard is incredibly high in this year’s competition with loads of fantastic designs so if you want to stand out, a big performance in the Bord Gáis on 5th May will definitely grab my attention!”
The final will take place at the Bord Gáis Energy Theatre on 5th May and will see the hopefuls compete for a spot representing Ireland in the world final.
