Everyone knows some of the hippest trendsetters come from the Garden State! New Jersey-native WWE powerhouse Daria Berenato—better known to some as “Sonya Deville”—has launched her chic new clothing line, “Rainbow Love.”
Born in Shamong, NJ, Daria is the first openly gay wrestler in WWE history. When she’s not bringing the pain on “SmackDown Live,” Berenato is a passionate advocate for a more just, even world. Her aim with “Rainbow Love” is to empower everyone to be their truest self, putting the LGBTQ+ community at the forefront of her line’s mission.
The “Rainbow Love” line is in partnership with Heavy Heart, a label known for their striking, avant-garde casual pieces. The line contrasts Berenato’s famous black wardrobe with bright, saturated rainbow and bold prints.
In addition to overarching LGBTQ+ themes, the line addresses anyone who may feel unseen or alone. Perhaps the line’s most famous item thus far, Berenato’s “YOU ARE NOT ALONE” tee lists the number for the National Suicide Prevention Hotline on the back.
“We talk about the taboo emotions — depression, suicide, angst, sadness…” said Berenato in an interview with EDGE. “…We talk about it to let you know it’s okay to feel this way, and that it’s okay to love yourself however you are.”
To browse these beautiful pieces, you can find them at Heavy Heart.
