Outfit 4 name :Broken Pieces

The aim of our outfit is to promote bullying and positive mental health and well being. We believe that everyone has the right to be treated equally and with respect. The black fading into the silver on the trousers represents the good/positivity washing out the bad/negativity and the bottle caps on the jacket and the rim of the shoes represents opening up to the world. There are broken cd’s on the back of the jacket, the sleeves and on the shoes and they represent how broken you are when you are being bullied. There are also keyboard keys on the shoes and they represent cyber bullying.
