Break Free NYFW Designer Showcase

New York Fashion Week Runway Show with a cause, featuring multiple designers, and performances on the runway.

On Monday, February 12th, the Break Free Foundation returns for their fifth New York Fashion Week showcase! This immersive fashion show features live entertainment, designers showcasing the latest styles, red-carpet interviews, and networking with designers, creatives, and industry experts.

Break Free is leading the discussion on mental health, substance use disorders, and co-occurring disorders within the fashion industry and beyond. Every runway season, we host a fashion showcase to have mental health and recovery take center stage during New York Fashion Week. Every season, we invite activists to walk the runway and showcase their designs to spread the message that there is life beyond recovery.

A majority of the proceeds from this showcase will go to the Break Free Foundation, which is a non-profit organization that provides scholarships to assist those seeking treatment for a substance use disorder through attending a rehabilitation and outpatient center.

New York Fashion Week Powered by Break Free will be held on Monday, February 12th. We invite all attendees to participate in a live art installation. There will be white butterflies where you can write a letter to your past self or honor the memory of a loved one lost to suicide or an overdose.

Mocktail Hour @ 6pm Mocktail hour will offer a sampling of all of your favorite mocktails from brands like Hiyo and Gruvi, powered by Mocktail Mart and Gemlife Collective.
After-Party @ 8:30pm The after-party will be presented by Mocktail Mart and Gemlife Collective as they serve up some incredible dry cocktails, an opportunity to walk the red carpet and be interviewed and photographed.
