Letter from Claire Sulmers: The State of Diversity in Fashion; My Response to Kerby Jean Raymond vs. Business of Fashion

Is Diversity in Fashion a trend? In some ways, it is. I’ve been writing about and documenting issues of diversity in fashion (interspersed with celeb style of course) for over a decade now. I remember back in July 2008, when Vogue asked, “Is Fashion Racist?“ One of the opening lines of the piece included someone rolling their eyes, asking, “Are we still talking about this?” Yes. Yes we are. Because fashion can be racist. Yes, sadly, we still have a problem. Pyer Moss designer Kerby…

Claire’s Life: Erin Harris and Valeisha Butterfield Jones’s Welcome to LA Brunch at the Jeremy

So there are a slew of bomb business women who have decided to ditch the sleet and snow of New York and move over to sunny LA. This past Saturday, I, along with many others, celebrated two of those women: Blue Flame SVP Erin Harris and Google’s Global Head of Women & Black Community Engagement, Valeisha Butterfield Jones. The brunch, sponsored by Ciroc, welcomed dozens of women who have it all: Style, Brains, and Beauty to match. With the help…

Go Where You Are Celebrated, Not Just Tolerated: New York Fashion Week Spring 2019 Day 1 in a Kimberly Goldson Suit and Gucci Crystal Sandals

Happy Saturday, from Las Vegas! Last week, I popped into Fashion Week for just one day to attend the Discount Universe show. Inspired by Harlem’s Fashion Row, I wore one of the featured designers, Kimberly Goldson, along with Gucci Accessories: I was recently quoted in New York Magazine’s the Cut, thrusting a spotlight on the lack of black bloggers on the front row during Fashion Week: I’ve been going to Fashion Weeks internationally since 2007, and it always seems to…

The Bomb Life: Our Fashion Spice Brunch with The Spice Suite in Washington DC Wearing Audacious & Feral

Happy Monday! This past Saturday, we had another successful event: an intimate brunch co-hosted by Angel Anderson of the Spice Suite in Washington, DC’s Studio 52! With plentiful food provided by Chef Tobias and beats by DJ JFK, the mood was properly set for an afternoon discussion centered on leveraging social media for success.

Finance & Finance: Save Up For Items On Your Lust List (Don’t Steal; Reflections on the Clermont Twins, SimplicityxStyle, and More)

Yesterday morning, we reported that Shannade Clermont of the Clermont Twins was arrested for allegedly stealing a dead man’s identity and using his credit cards to spend thousands on clothes, rent, and flights. This incident is the 2nd time I’ve heard of women we’ve featured on Fashion Bomb Daily being arrested for stealing–seemingly all for the love of labels and the limelight. One of the most talked about cases featured was one of my favorites, @SimplicityxStyle, who was submitted by…

Ask Claire: What is Going On With @FashionBombDaily ?

Happy Friday, Bomb Lifers! I was gonna come here and just tell you what I’ve been up to the past few days, but I know y’all just want to know: What is Going On With @FashionBombDaily ?!? FBD going down has been, for some, like a death in the family. I’ve received prayers, condolences, and hysterical phone calls from all over the globe. I’m taking it all in stride because I know FBD is not gone. It is on hiatus…

When Life Gives You Lemons, Make Lemonade: 5 Things I’ve Learned Since @FashionBombDaily Has Been Offline

The past few days have been a whirlwind as I’ve tried to wrap my mind around what has happened. At 1.4 million followers, we were flying high, churning out content like a machine. Then Instagram decided to pull the plug, and we were left to twiddle our thumbs as the Instagram judge and jury determines our fate. Working in fashion has never been easy for me. From the beginning, I was told that I wasn’t made for fashion, told ‘No’…

The Bomb Life 101: Don’t Leave the Party Early

I’m not one to linger at a party. After I do a few laps and take a few pix, I’m cool heading back home. Such was the case at Saturday’s #GucciWooster party. After I said ‘hey’ to Dapper Dan and A Boogie, I hopped in an Uber, and missed all grades of bold faced names, including Rihanna, Salma Hayek, ASAP Rocky, and Gucci head designer Alessandro Michele himself. All that to say…most celebs come fashionably late. So just have a…
