Weekend Recap: Break NYFW ‘19
Upon entering the glass doors of A/D/O in Greenpoint, it was clear that The Break’s FW19 show aimed to make fashion environments more democratic and inviting. Before they strut down the catwalk, you could see models socializing in their final looks, friendly faces gathering for group photos, and the crowd dancing along to the deejay’s curated playlist.
In a see-now-buy-now format, the collection aimed to celebrate the spirit of New York and the tireless creatives working in the city. Fashion enthusiasts arrived in their evening best; scattered across the audience and runway alike, we saw lots of earth tones, pinstripe suits, silky gowns and subdued colors of blue and red.
The Break’s founder, Hannah Richtman, made sure the event reflected the pillars of her brand; inclusivity, sustainability and accessibility for all; as they walked (or danced) down the runway the models mirrored The Break’s ethos of inclusivity featuring varying body types and forms of expression.
Milk fam Gabbriette (singer and guitarist of Nasty Cherry) closed the show as an enchanting free form dance performance immediately followed; as soon as the models were off the runway, the steel benches were moved behind the curtain, and a party that wrapped up the event. Head to our gallery above to check out some of the night’s highlights.
