Sometimes it takes one teacher to change your whole perspective, and that is exactly what happened for 24-year-old Irish Designer Niamh Porter during her Junk Kouture journey. Follow Niamh as she finds her love for art again and reignites her passion for creativity through fashion and sustainability!

“You just know, when somebody truly loves art, and Niamh truly loved it! She had an innate talent, it was like pulling it out, dragging it out of her, and getting her to believe in herself!”

-Patrice Gallagher, Teacher at Deele College (Donegal, Ireland)
