On Saturday, September 7th, survivors, celebrities, and families affected by the opioid crisis came together to share their stories. As decades of medical neglect come to light, large pharmaceutical companies and government bodies are finally taking notice. The fashion industry is no stranger to addiction and during New York Fashion Week, Supermodels Unlimited Magazine honored those in recovery and those lost to the disease of addiction. To celebrate those living in recovery they showcased a collection of little blue dresses during national recovery month.

The LBD Movement is a celebrity fashion showcase held seasonally during New York Fashion Week that highlights national issues facing teens and young adults. This year’s show featured survivors of addiction, from all walks of life, who are giving back to their communities and inspiring a new generation to make healthy choices. Along with the survivors walking in The LBD Movement runway show was proud to host celebrated models and actresses: Isis King from Netflix’s When They See Us, Jeana Turner from America’s Next Top Model (ANTM).

What they’re doing cannot be applauded enough. Addiction effects everyone at some point in their life, whether it be a friend, family, or yourself. Shatterproof is working hard to aid in their recovery, save lives, and rebuild relationships. Shatterproof is a blessing, and we owe it to them to show our support!”
