The Zero Year collection speaks to the multiple adversities involved in starting one’s path towards a specific goal in life. External problems, ties and obligations can make it difficult to achieve a dream or purpose. On the runway this fear was expressed through by tight belts, long bondages, split-face make-up, hidden faces, and other chaotic motifs.
The iconic yellow belt was leveraged in this show, representing a symbol of the safety commonly seen on airplanes. Killing Weekend is adopting this symbol of safety to represent the freedom-oriented life most working class people strive to achieve.
