The Richest Man in the World Owns a Fashion Brand: The Sky is the Limit Wearing a Palmer Harding Draped Top and Fashion Bomb Daily Shop

I'm literally sitting here yawning as I prepare to host a fashion show in New York. Y'all pray for me, mmmmk? At any rate, I wanted to drop in quickly to let you know that the richest man in the world is Bernard Arnault, the CEO of LVMH, the home to brands like Louis Vuitton, Givenchy, and Christian Dior. Instead of opine on the importance of us supporting emerging brands vs. continue to line the pockets of a billionaire who is richer than...

The Bomb Life 101: Take the Time to Reflect on How Far You’ve Come Wearing a Dress by Persepshen Clothing + Hanifa Neon Suit

Twice in the past couple weeks, I have returned to 'where it all started' for me in my career. Back in 2006, when I started Fashion Bomb Daily, I worked as a Researcher/Reporter for Time, Inc. Researchers were in charge of fact checking a magazine, because once something is in print, you can't take it back! At any rate, I worked at 50th and 6th avenue for 4 years at a 9-5 before deciding to start my blog, quit my job, then embark on the...

Claire’s Life: I’m on a Billboard in Times Square for The Morgan Stanley Multicultural Innovation Lab

While I'm a very public person, I am actually quite private, keeping my most precious 'business' to myself. However, once my Times Square Billboard went up celebrating the members of the 2021 Winter Cohort of the Morgan Stanley Multicultural Innovation Lab, I had to let the cat out of the bag! What's the Morgan Stanley Multicultural Innovation Lab? It's a business incubator that selects a small number of applicants to offer them an investment,...

Where to Party in Atlanta: Claire Sulmers at The Linnethia Lounge by Nene Leakes

If your travels ever find you in the A, be sure to pop by the Linnethia Lounge, a bar/lounge/events space with great music, bomb drinks, and performances, owned by the endlessly effervescent, Nene Leakes: On my recent dip down South, I made my way to Duluth, specifically 2255 Pleasant Hill Rd Suite 470, to see what Ms. Leakes had in store. The answer? Lots of fun! While I was sad to miss the performance by Saucy Santana (security stopped me and...

Last night, I flew down to the A for a Celebration for Quality Control Music CEO Pierre 'P' Thomas's Birthday hosted by Diddy.

I Agree with Monique: Black Women, Please Stop Wearing Bonnets in Public + What I Wear to the Airport

Despite my role as the owner and CEO of a Fashion Media company, I generally stay out of the fray. I try not to openly express judgment, and am very live and let live, adhering to the tenet, "judge not, lest ye be judged." I generally look the other way or shake my head to myself when I go through the airport and see my fellow sisters, sometimes groups of them, wearing bonnets. But now that Monique has taken to Instagram to urge these young...

Diversity is Our Strength: Short Reflections on my Black Experience in White Private Schools

When I was 9-years-old, my mother transported my brother and I from 'The Block is Hot" New York City down to Atlanta, Georgia. New York of the 80's and early 90's was violent and crack ridden, with shootings occurring with alarming frequency. My mother had seen enough, and thus took us down South. My world instantly shifted. I went from going to the majority black public school PS 235 to the majority white Westminster Schools of Atlanta. And...
