About the Runway Show
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 Monday, February 14th, 2022 at 7 pm ET.
Break Free NYFW is our plea to society to open up about their struggles with mental health and substance use disorder, to begin to take these issues as seriously as a physical illness. We have invited mental health and addiction activists to not only walk in this show as models but to be featured designers showcasing their collections for the world to see.
Leading up to the event, there will be a series of virtual panels for the designers and models to take part in discussing topics ranging from substance use disorder within the fashion industry to how to self-care for yourself during NYFW to avoid burnout.
A portion of the proceeds from this show will go towards a scholarship program to assist those seeking treatment for a substance use disorder to enter into rehab.
