Nukumori is the Japanese word used to signify emotional warmth. It is a warmth no to be felt in the skin but in the heart and soul.
In a time of economic, political and social instability, people are closing their doors and hearts to those who are different in nation, skin, gender, beliefs or sexuality.
Now more than ever, I believe it is important to create bonds instead of barriers.
The concept of emotional warmth, Nukumori, also speaks to my identity as Japanese-Brazilian. Raised a mixture of these two countries, I grew up to appreciate and value the exchanges between different cultures. It was over a 100 years ago when Brazil opened its doors to Japanese immigrants. I was only born because of that. I owe my own existence to openness and acceptance and I believe the world to be in need of that.
My goal with this collection is to create clothes that incite connection and understanding amongst people. To remind them of their ability to give and receiving warmth.
