Is Gabrielle 5Th Avenue a Scam? Review of

This brand has approached many people under different names like Chic NYC, NYC Chic, Nora NYC, and now Gabrielle 5th Avenue. I know they are run by the same people as the email formatting and offers are the same, and my suspicion was confirmed when one of the embedded links in a new email led to an old website they were advertising Gabrielle 5th Avenue, but their link led to a deactivated Nora NYC website.

This brand preys on small content creators looking to grow their following and client base. They offer so-called 'high end' products for a fraction of the price, but products are knockoffs of poor quality, and opportunity to feature your content in 'luxury magazines'.

One name I remember is Megan and she never responded to me when I said, where is your track record and growth leading up to the 209 followers. Google links things, but there’s nothing on them. Weird. I don’t believe they can do what they promise. They can’t even answer questions about their own brand. People can ask me anything about my brand.

    “Celine Ryan” is the one who contacted me re: the modeling gig. I was so confused and asked which profile they came across and how they got my email address. Of course no response but they proceeded to send more info along with the $500 gift card…so happy I came across this thread. Instant block and delete!

    Yes anything affiliated with chic NYC/Nora NYC is a scam. They’ve been scamming since 2017. All they do is drop ship cheap Asian products and resell with prices waaaay higher.

    I don't even know why this company bothers that much knowing that there are so many negative reviews where people can uncover their unprofessional practice.

    aye I had a similar experience, they messaged me via email and I talked to 'megan' who also wanted me to be featured on elite magazine lol it sounded sus right at the beginning - sentences like 'Your item will ship out within 48 hours - I am saving spot #4 for you out of 12! We have just 4 more to fill so please do this as soon as possible.' already gave me a flavor of sh lmao then I tried the code which functioned but I knew that there's something wrong when I saw that I had to pay 99$ for a 599$ 'vip box' cuz they just give you 500$ off. all in all I went through google to look up their address and just found this page here, thanks for sharing all your information - here are mine - don't let assh*** like these scam you, we need to stick together <3

    gabrielle & co new york contacted me. Almost fell for it

  • August 22, 2022 at 10:59 PM by an anonymous user from: Chatham, Chatham-Kent, Ontario, Canada

    Thanks for this. I also received an email and was excited to get "high end clothes" but really skeptical coz I just have small followers on yt and IG and who would waste a dime on a nobody and put me on the ELITE magazine? like duhhh ahhahaha She even try to say she will give me $500 if I agree on becoming a model to their campaign. hahaha

      I too got a similar email. Made me wonder.

  • August 16, 2022 at 6:02 AM by an anonymous user from: Lisboa, Lisboa, Portugal

    Just received email, with same information just like other comments said but from an email, from Megan Specter girl, digital influencer coordinator.

    This is a scheme.

    Thanks for your help

      Exact same for me!

  • July 18, 2022 at 9:13 AM by an anonymous user from: Ashburn, Virginia, United States

    These lowlifes now operate under Gabrielle and New York.

    I had a lady called “Megan” reach out to me to shoot some products they were going to send for me.

    I do a lot with other brands - and should have noticed that they were asking for $100 for a $599 gift box.

    No tracking number sent. No replies after I placed the order.

    Steer clear of these people taking advantage of small content creators.

    • August 11, 2022 at 11:20 PM by an anonymous user from: Seongnam, South Korea

      I'm so happy I did some research as I also was contacted by this Megan girl. I was really close to trusting this but then again, the "high-end" clothing on their website didn't make any sense.

    • July 20, 2022 at 7:52 AM by an anonymous user from: Ashburn, Virginia, United States

      Second this.

      This company doesn’t even list a working number - nor does the chat feature work on the website.

      Their Instagram content is all generic and taken from stock images/celebrity pictures.

      Steer clear of these scammers.

    So true. How is Gabrielle 5th Avenue in Miama FL? or the email I received: Gabrielle and New York. Uh, NY is not in FL. Lol. And they said they saw my husband's IG and thought he would be great to model THEIR clothes. He is a fashion designer and master tailor. Why would he want to model their clothes and not his own? They have a generic website with stock photos. Our website only uses our own designs: We won't be contacting them. Thanks.
