My final collection is about childhood nostalgia and kidult. The starting point is the movie, Pee-wee’s Big Adventure by Tim Burton. This is about eccentric man-child Pee-Wee Herman who embarks on the biggest adventure of his life across the US mainland, as he sets out to find his beloved bike when it is stolen in broad daylight. I analysed Peewee’s character and tried to focus on his tendency of childhood nostalgia. All box shaped garments are made bright, fun and colourful in leather, suede, fur and wool to express warmth and childish innocence. Moreover, to add a toyish and fun element, I put thousands of pins on the boxes to make three-dimensional shapes on the garment. And I made basic inners by digitally printing my own illustrations from research. I produced fun and cute accessories, which match with each outfit by using real toys. I put my all efforts into making fun and delightful outfits like the kidult, Peewee who has a childish and pure mind.
