From Harvard to High Fashion with Claire Sulmers
By Ahbria Marshall
From Harvard to high fashion -- Claire Sulmers is all that, and everything in between. Her impeccable passion for fashion helped her launch her blog, FashionBombDaily.com, back in 2006 where there was very little space for full-time fashion writers. Fast forward 13 years later, Fashion Bomb Daily has grown a following of 1.3 million, readership of close to 2.4 million, and is rapidly growing. We recently caught up with Claire at her "Convos With Claire" event in Miami for a quick chat.
So how does Claire Sulmers make it happen?
She sets and exceeds measurable goals.
“Every year we’re striving to level up and target more markets,” said Sulmers. So, she took to sunny Miami to do just that. Sulmer’s newest venture, Convos with Claire, is an intimate evening conversation with some of her favorite pivotal leaders in entertainment. “I love Miami! I love the style, the flavor. I always receive such a warm welcome when I come here,” Sulmers exclaimed excitedly. “It’s about time [Fashion Bomb Daily] does something in Miami.”
Being that she is the Editor-in-Chief for the 43rd most influential style magazines in the world, Sulmers is quite precise when it comes to organizing her ideas. So when it was time to choose her speakers, Sulmers knew exactly who would fit perfectly -- Trina, Rico Love, Amara La Negra, and author Venita McCollum. Each spoke on the ups and downs of career success, gave their insight on life, and spoke fashion influence. “I invited [them] because they represent Miami. They’re all Miami and have quintessential style,” said Sulmers.
Here is a lesson to learn from Claire Sulmers: set goals and fine-tune details, it will not only help with success, but makes for a great turn out. “I think that the line-up we had was the best, like it blew me away,” Sulmers admired. “Everything about it blew me away.”
