This garment is dedicated to my friends and my childhood. As a 90s baby, growing up I was obsessed with playing video games. The game that inspired me to create this piece was Kingdom Hearts. One of the main themes of the game was the power of friendship. The main character, Sora, embarks on a quest to find his lost friends. Along the way he battles physical, living manifestations of the darkness within people's hearts - also known as “The Heartless.” The purity of the love found in friendship helps him to prevail every time along with the help of his keyblade. While I haven’t battled any amorphous monsters with my own key blade, I do hold my friendships close to my heart because they have carried me through the darkness before.
The metal, heart-shaped keys on the garment are inspired by both “The Heartless” and the weapon that Sora uses to defeat them “The Keyblade.” They are hand sewn on top of a retro-washed waffle knit, which makes for one of my most complex and meaningful pieces to date. In my opinion, this garment pushes the boundaries of fashion. I’m proud of it and I hope that you are too.
