Ask Claire: How Do I Get You (Or An Influencer) to Promote My Brand or Wear my Product?

Today Tyesha wrote me an email, typing: “Hey good afternoon , I hope all is well. What can I do to get my edge control in your hand?. I have my own product. I’ve been trying to network with different people to get myself out there. I would like to send you some free samples of my product & will like your feed back.

My Azzedine Alaia Bombe Sandals Broke, #WhatisLife: Reflections on My Broken Bronx Heels Wearing an Anz Style Sweatsuit

The Gospel According To André: Andre Leon Talley’s Legacy According to Claire Sulmers

I was more than excited to get a ticket to see a screening of “The Gospel According to André,” during Tribeca Film Festival. The documentary traces iconic Vogue Editor at Large Andre Leon Talley’s life, from his humble beginnings in Durham, North Carolina, to his rise to the top ranks and front rows of high fashion. André Leon Talley has always held a special place in my heart. Aside from us both being black and obsessed with style, I felt…
