New York, NY, August 25 – Back in February, Break Free took New York Fashion Week by storm. Designers such as Jacqueline City Apparel, Zephyr, Love Disorder, Adorn Your Clothing, LadyCat and more gather here. These designers came together to raise awareness for the non-profit organization 10,000 Beds. Break Free’s main goal was to raise funds for 10,000 beds and their “One Bed. One Life” scholarship fund. The foundation connects individuals and families battling drug use disorders and mental health challenges with appropriate, vetted treatment programs across the country that do not have the funds to pay for treatment.
10,000 Beds founder Jean Krisle commented: [will continue to] Raise awareness about mental health and recovery [to] society as a whole. “
Break Free NYFW is the brainchild of Alexandra Nyman, Creative Director of LadyCat and Editor-in-Chief of Soberocity. This event would not have been possible without her Recovery Centers of America (Alcohol & Addiction Treatment Centers), the event’s corporate sponsor and chief scientific officer, Dr. Deni Carise.
Break Free and Recovery Centers of America raised $5,000 for the 10,000 Beds Scholarship Fund. This is enough to provide scholarships to 10 people to attend rehabilitation centers through our partnership with 10,000 Beds and their excellent scholarship program.
“I am delighted to have been able to attend and donate to this important event.As someone long-term recovering from a drug problem in my 20s modeling career, I am finally ‘walking the runway.’ It was a very satisfying experience. New York Fashion Week!” She thanks Alexandra Nyman for this opportunity and her 10,000 beds in providing scholarships to those in need of treatment for substance use disorders,” said RCA’s Supreme.
