Wenzel: Assabet student to head to Junk Kouture Fashion World finals

MARLBOROUGH – Elliot Cosco of Marlborough, a senior at Assabet Valley Regional High School, is headed to Salle des Princes in Monaco to attend the Junk Kouture Fashion World Finals.

Originally scheduled for London, the competition was changed to this location on the French Riviera.

A member of Assabet’s Fashion Club, Elliot created a design, “The Egoist,” which was entered in the Junk Kouture New York competition and qualified for the Junk Kouture World Finals.

Junk Kouture challenges young people, aged 13 – 18, to design, upcycle and create high-end couture from recycled materials.

Cosco will compete with students from London, Dublin, Abu Dhabi, New York, Milan and Paris. “The Egoist” design features a galaxy of planets made from CDs that surround the model, a space helmet, and a bountiful skirt that represents the infinite galactic universe.

MAYOR Christian Dumais was an honored guest at the Feb. 8 meeting of the Rotary Club of Marlborough. Addressing Rotarians, he showcased his busy first 30 days as Mayor in the City and answered questions from members. Topics he discussed included schools, his redesigned website, a dog park, the “boardwalk,” and more.

“Marlborough has so much to offer,” stated Dumais.

The Mayor also announced his first “Chat & Chew with Mayor Christian” event on Saturday, Feb. 24, at 10 a.m. at the Marlborough Senior Center at 40 New St. This event will give Marlborough senior citizens the opportunity to share their concerns and ideas with the Mayor while enjoying a free breakfast. In an effort to bring different portions of the community together, Mayor Christian has asked several non-profit community groups to sponsor the event. This month, it is the Marlborough Lions Club that donated the food and will be cooking and serving.

CONGRATULATIONS to Marlborough High School student Thalia. After winning the Massachusetts Lions Youth Speech Competition at the Marlborough Lions Club level, she went on to become the Runner Up in the Zone level of the competition on Jan. 6 in Framingham. Many members of the local Lions Club were on hand to cheer her on, and it was interesting and enlightening to hear Thalia and three other high school students from our area speak on the topic, “With Which Historical Figure Would You Most Like to Speak?”
