At just 18 years old, Sabrina Fuentes and Manon Macasaet—better known as SickySab and MingBlingBling—have seemingly taken over the downtown-NYC scene: You can find Sabrina performing with her band, Pretty Sick, at China Chalet on a Saturday night while Manon shoots photos for Stüssy lookbooks. Their friendship both on and offline is heartwarming and authentic and has become a core part of their professional lives—Sabrina is frequently the subject of Manon's creative projects and the girls often model together in shoots. Eager to hear more, we spoke to Sabrina and Manon about their friendship, creative aspirations, and how NYC has played an integral role in their upbringing.
