POWER OF PLAY
Grange Academy, Kilmarnock
The design was inspired by the concern that young people are spending too much time on technology instead of playing with toys. By applying recycled Barbies, jigsaws and Lego bricks we created this outfit. The Barbies represent how young people using social media will see ‘Instagram models’ and be given the idea of a ‘perfect body’ which is fake and filtered. Through adapting some of the Barbies, this demonstrates breaking free from the concept of a ‘perfect body’, showing the beauty of all body types. Young people need to break free from the ‘perfect body’ image. Break free from technology!
