Nobody can stop Fashion Bomb CEO, Claire Sulmer’s shine as she is in her element and a force to be reckoned with. That’s right! A change-maker, an innovator, and a fashion disrupter, Claire is undoubtedly in her own lane
Representing for women of color in the fashion everywhere, Sulmers made a guest appearance on CBS Mornings with Gayle King to talk about everything from Fashion Bomb daily, to crashing runways shows, and making her own seat at the table.
The hosts of CBS Mornings welcomed Sulmers with an extravagant introduction, praising her for some of her accolades, while also recognizing the contributions that she has made through diversity in the fashion industry.
With a background in Journalism as a Fact Checker at Real Simple Magazine, Claire autonomously started her own blog back in 2006 to showcase people who looked like her in fashion which at the time was practically non-existent.
From being featured in Teen Vogue as the ‘Blogger of the moment with Marc Jacobs, to becoming the CEO of the #1 Multicultural digital fashion platform, Claire has become the queen of her own domain.
“When I was coming in, there really was no blueprint or way in for me, so I had to crash my way in and now that I have a wonderful platform, I want to use it to empower and to uplift people who might not have an opportunity otherwise,” stated Sulmers.
Opting for a vibrant mint green hue, similar to the color worn by the CBS host, Sulmers wore a $265 Fumi Janet Embellished Dress that she paired with $219 Tiffany Blue ‘Cult of Coquette’ slingback pumps available at FashionBombDailyShop.com.
Also opting for a dress instead of a traditional blazer and pants combo like her co-host, Gayle King looked exceptional in a green and black printed Chiara Boni cocktail dress that originally retailed for $790 but can be purchased on sites like Poshmark and Current Boutique for a fraction of the cost.
King accessorized with an Apple Watch and metallic chrome heels that tied her ensemble together. During the interview, King expressed, “I love Fashion Bomb Daily because it’s not snarky, and it’s not mean-spirited,” and inquired, “How do you explain what it [Fashion Bomb daily] is and what it does?”
To which Sulmer’s responded, “We’re educationally aspirational, and so we just present people with great style.” She further elaborated that ” My mission in everything that I do is to highlight, uplift and inspire people.”
It was great to see our CEO, Claire Sulmers and Gayle King unite on CBS Mornings to discuss how Fashion Bomb daily has changed the game and has ultimately influenced diversity in the Fashion industry.
As the interview came to a close, Sulmers shared that Fashion Bomb Daily will hosting their 3rd annual “The Bomb fashion show” that will be taking place on September 9th during NYFW.
