The Break curates and sells vintage pieces that offer elevated nostalgia, but also houses its fair share of cool up-and-coming indie brands.
Hannah created The Break with the word community in mind, aiming to build a place where everyone is truly free to be themselves.

As Hannah admits, opening a store was never really part of her plan. Starting out as a fashion blogger, she quickly gained access to fashion events and shows, but was struck by how cold the fashion world could be. ”The sterility, the who-are-you attitude, and hyper-exclusivity really took me by surprise,” she says. Her hope that there were others who wanted to create an accessible, forward-thinking shopping environment is what ultimately fueled her to take the leap and open The Break.
