In addition to her work in the fashion industry, Alexandra is a fierce advocate for mental health and addiction recovery. She serves as the editor in chief for Soberocity, a sober blog that curates and produces sober events. Alexandra is also on the board of two non-profits and is using her platform to raise awareness for reforms in how we address mental health.
LadyCat’s mission is to inspire, educate, and to save cats. All of our clothing is size-inclusive and aims to spread a message of hope. I strive to be an advocate in the mental health space as well as the addiction recovery space by continuing this ongoing national conversation in an open and honest manner. A portion of the proceeds from my first collection “Therapy” was donated to the Trevor Project.
The Trevor Project is the leading national organization providing crisis intervention and suicide prevention services to LGBTQ young people ages 13-24. Every day, The Trevor Project saves young lives through its accredited free and confidential phone, instant message and text messaging crisis services. They are a leader and innovator in suicide prevention. They offer the largest social networking community for LGBTQ youth. As well as best practice suicide prevention educational trainings, resources for youth and adults, and advocacy initiatives. Learn more at TheTrevorProject.org.
Mental health is something that has profoundly impacted my life, and it was such a surreal experience to present “Therapy” during NYFW. Many people came up to me after the show to tell me about how mental health has impacted their lives. It was one of the most humbling experiences of my life in order to be able to share these stories with all of you. Partnering with the Trevor Foundation is so important to me as it allows me to be able to give back to the community. Without the resources provided by The Trevor Project, the world would be a darker place.
LadyCat also strives to share our passion for fashion by offering free crocheting patterns and commentary on the latest fashion trends through our blog. We believe that by sharing tutorials and educating others on how to create, it will help others to find their unique voice in the fashion community.
Lastly, LadyCat is a safe haven for cat lovers. During National Cat Day, we will be donating a portion of our RedBubble sales are donated to the BARC Shelter, which is a no-kill cat shelter located in Brooklyn, NY.
What is LadyCat Fashion?
LadyCat Fashion is a design house that was officially established in 2019. LadyCat was founded by indie designer, Alexandra Nyman, in New York City, New York. In February 2019, LadyCat Fashion launched its first ready-wear collection entitled “Therapy”. The inspiration for “Therapy” came from my brother and his mental health journey. He has faced so much since being diagnosed with bipolar disorder, and I am in awe of his strength every day. He is my driving force and main inspiration in all I do. I wanted this collection to inspire others to seek help and to take their mental health seriously. It is my plea to society to open up about their struggles with mental health and to begin to take it as seriously as a physical disability.
Therapy was embraced by a number of Influencers who walked in the collection including Gabi DeMartino, Naty Ashba, Gabby Fe, Janira Oberlin, and Christy-Anne Lopez. To order from the collection or a custom creation, send us an e-mail to schedule a consultation. LadyCat is size inclusive and designs for people of all shapes and sizes, we believe you should feel glamorous no matter your measurements.
