NYCxClothes & Friends is a community of creatives who like to meet people in chill settings. From workout classes to painting and creative work sessions, we curate unconventional experiences to redefine the way networking is done.
We are Shelcy and Christy, the Haitian sister duo and creative minds behind fashion and lifestyle brand NYCxClothes. Born and raised in Haiti, we moved to New York in 2010 and started documenting our lives in the Big Apple in 2014. NYCxClothes & Friends came out of a desire to connect with people on a deep level and create a physical community.
Back in 2016, we noticed that many of the events we’d go to lacked the human element. They followed a very rigid structure: a talk or panel followed by a Q&A and some informal mingling. But there weren’t icebreaker activities or concerted efforts to match people based on their interests. So we started hosting the events we’d want to see.
Making friends is hard, especially in a city like New York. Whether you’re new to the city or looking to meet more people in your industry, this is the place for you! All are welcome! Behavior code: CHILL.
