Marry Me Betty | February 2023 NYFW

Collection Statement

“Marry Me Betty” is a commentary on generational trauma and a criticism of the expansion of Kendra’s Law by Mayor Adams’, which forcefully hospitalizes those who appear to exhibit signs of mental illness. Nyman hopes her message of breaking free from generational trauma and continuing to seek mental health treatment is one that will resonate with others. She passionately urges members of the New York legislature to pass Daniel’s Law, which treats mental health as a public health issue and not a public safety threat and has mental health professionals as the first responders for matters of mental health crises.

A portion of the proceeds for this collection will be donated to our non-profit beneficiary, the Break Free Foundation.
