Open to the Public
Break Free NYFW is an immersive runway experience of art, design, fashion, and social issues. the show will be held during New York Fashion Week on Saturday, February 12th, 2022.
Break Free NYFW is my plea to society to open up about their struggles with mental health and addiction, and to begin to take it as seriously as they do with a physical disability. We have invited mental health and addiction activists to not only walk in this show as models, but to also be featured designers showcasing their collections for the world to see.
At the end of the show, there will be a panel discussion on mental health and addiction in the fashion industry. There will be an influencer moderator leading the panel, as well as an opportunity for members of the press and attendees to ask the designers and panelists questions.
A portion of the proceeds from this show will go towards a scholarship program to admit those seeking treatment for a substance use disorder to enter into rehab for a sixty day stay.
