The Merging of Mental Health & Fashion

 Break Free NYFW, a runway show with a cause, announces its NYFW debut on Monday, February 14th, 2022.

Is it too big a stretch to merge the conversation of mental health and recovery with fashion? Alexandra Nyman of LadyCat, whose premiere collection, Therapy, was inspired by her brother’s struggle with Bipolar Disorder, doesn’t think so.

LadyCat is spearheading a show during NYFW called Break Free. Described as an immersive runway experience of art, design, and fashion dedicated to raising awareness around mental health & addiction, Nyman is excited to be sharing this showcase with five other extraordinary designers: ZephyrJacqueline City ApparelLove DisorderWu-Sah, and Adorn Your Clothes.

Kelsey, the creative mind behind Zephyr, is a proudly queer, disabled, designer, who creates magic in the Pacific Northwest. Over the past year, she’s focused full-time on healing from cptsd, including discovering and understanding her dissociative disorder.

Jacqueline City is a 24-year-old disabled fashion designer and CEO of Jacqueline City Apparel. The city suffers from dysautonomia and POTS as well as heart disease and PTSD. Despite her health challenges, Jacqueline City continued to pursue her art and created Jacqueline City Apparel – a sustainable, vegan clothing line with inclusive sizing and affordable prices.

Love Disorder’s mission is to inform society about mental health issues while teaching how to become aware & accepting of the disorders challenging the world today.

Svetlana Chernienko is a Canadian-American Mental Health advocate, activist, and TV news contributor. As of this year, Svetlana will be working on her eco-sustainable fashion line, Wu-Sah, and striving to reach a bigger audience to shed as much light on Mental Health Awareness as she possibly can.

Adorn Your Clothes© is a place that allows you to love and adorn your clothes however you like. We hope as you adorn and reinvent your clothes, you will cherish them in your wardrobe longer, send fewer clothes to landfills, and stop global warming together.

A portion of the proceeds from this showcase will go to the nonprofit organization, 10,000 Beds, which was founded by Jean Krisle. Krisle has worked within the recovery community to develop long-standing relationships with donors and leaders from across the world.

Like Nyman’s first showcase, Therapy, Break Free has garnered the support of many influencers. Like YouTuber Gabi DeMartino, breast cancer survivor Christine Handy, and sober model Jenn Ancelin.

Hi everyone! Nice to e-meet you! Here are a few things you should know about me. I am a conscientious, open-minded, adaptable to new experiences, and ambitious Business Development Manager with a Bachelor's Degree in Economics - Banking, Finance, and Accountancy. Through my studies, I've also obtained many naturopathic and nutrition degrees as well. Part-time jobs have added marketing, network marketing, event management, and store management skills to my experience throughout my career. Throughout my career, I have also been a Hotel Manager and owned a Bar/Restaurant & Internet Cafe. My online marketing and social media interactivity experience was gained when I and my husband started a business with an online/organic webshop & healthy lifestyle consultancy. I've improved my English at Cambridge Academy of English - 2003, in Cambridge. I live a conscious lifestyle, and try to protect the ecosystem. Animal lover and capable of helping others without judgment or negative reactions, this is thanked my knowledge in holistic therapies and the naturopathy courses I've followed. I cannot leave for my spiritual growth and the continuous development in alternative and holistic therapies, so I'm learning at Kyron School of New Consciousness, receiving a Bio Energo-therapist diploma. Thanks to all my experiences I've decided to venture into publishing and writing, while also continuing to learn many new things daily. I hope you enjoy reading my hand-picked news and check back for my weekly articles.
