Colorado based men’s fashion and lifestyle accessories mission-driven brand, INHERENT, will debut at NYFW as a proud non-profit partner to advocate for men’s mental health.
Colorado Springs, CO. - (February 1st, 2022):
INHERENT is more than a men’s lifestyle clothing line. It was founded on the principles of normalizing men “wearing their heart on their sleeve” and speaking freely about their vulnerabilities and ending the stigma around men’s mental wellness. In addition to INHERENT’s menswear collections, INHERENT launched their own Foundation to develop practical events, resources, and programs that equip, enable and empower men to live as their authentic selves. Now, INHERENT will be partnering with Art Hearts Fashion at this year’s New York Fashion Week – they have previously featured non-profits such as Make-A-Wish Foundation and the American Heart Association. The legendary, fashion-packed event is to be held February 11th through February 16th, 2022 in New York City, NY.
“I was inspired to create INHERENT after overcoming the darkest period of my life. I realized throughout my mental health journey that caring for myself and my appearance gave me the confidence to fight,” says INHERENT Founder Taylor Draper. “I’m thrilled to be able to share this message at NYFW and further bridge the gap between men, the resources they need, and the life they deserve, while showcasing our latest AUTHENTIC by INHERENT capsule and the Steve McQueen by INHERENT collection for which I drew motivation and inspiration from the style icon that is Steve McQueen, but also Theadora Van Runkle, who was costume and wardrobe designer on the feature films Bullitt and The Thomas Crown Affair that remain go-to movies for any Steve McQueen fan with an appreciation for the man’s style!”
INHERENT is trailblazing the conversation around men’s mental wellness in the fashion industry, and it’s representation at NYFW is only the beginning. As a non-profit partner of Art Hearts Fashion, which puts on the most iconic runway events, the INHERENT Foundation team can be found at select fashion shows and in the VIP lounge. With INHERENT at the forefront of men’s mental wellness advocacy, especially within the world of high-end style, the goal is to encourage men to embrace their inner confidence and authentic self-expression by feeling and looking their best.
INHERENT is sure to make a meaningful statement and bring awareness to mental wellness at this year’s NYFW. Check out the full Art Hearts Fashion schedule, designers, and more at NYFW.net.
