She has also coordinated meetings and events ranging from small, corporate lunches to large concerts.
Findlay has always been passionate about design and creative development. She saw an immediate need for quality custom suits by her friends working in the nightclub industry. One New Year’s Eve, Findlay crafted flower lapels for a team of nightclub hosts in her living room. The accessories became an instant hit. She has combined her passion for event coordinating and her passion for fashion to cofound a luxury suit company centered around her vision of “Luxury with a Cause.” Findlay utilizes her degree in Event Management to host memorable events while also raising funds and awareness for charities and non-profits. She currently resides in NYC.
“Some of the most creative and prominent people in the world come together in NYC for this one week, why not take it a step further and support a remarkable cause while they’re here,” Says Findlay.
Les Couleurs NYC is a comprehensive arts, crafts, and design nonprofit aiming at fostering children’s creative and cognitive skills. The program gives children in Haiti the resources they need to excel in visual and applied arts, fashion, design and crafts. “ The charity doesn’t just go there, build schools and leave. They actually train the teachers and help them build lesson plans to teach the students skills that they could benefit from for a lifetime,” says Findlay.
