On Monday, September 11th, the Break Free Foundation returns for their fourth NYFW designer charity showcase at the iconic 230 Fifth Empire Ballroom.

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 designer 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.
The Break Free NYFW Designer Showcase will be held on Monday, September 11th. 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.
September is also National Recovery Month, a month to celebrate those who have sought recovery from a substance use disorder and to encourage others to seek ways to gain sobriety and live a sober lifestyle.
In honor of National Recovery Month, you can use code RECOVERYMONTH for $5 off your order. If you are a person in recovery and cannot afford to attend the showcase, please email us at [email protected] for information on gaining complimentary access to the showcase.
