Started in August 2006 by journalist Claire Sulmers, The Fashion Bomb provides daily doses of chic to stylistas of color. Recognizing there were few print and online sources for urban fashion, Claire took her interests in style and writing to create an online destination earmarked for sassy sirens with a passion for fashion.
500,000 monthly visitors log on to The Fashion Bomb for its fresh takes on fashion news and stories, along with its boutique spotlights, fashion show reviews, trends, parties, celebrity looks for less, and tips on how to break into the industry from the best in the business.
In October 2008, Claire moved to Paris, France to draw inspiration from the singular beauty unique to the world's capital of fashion. Now international, The Fashion Bomb has several contributors, and seeks to be the global online destination for connoisseurs of style.
