CLAIRE SULMERS HOSTS TAMMY RIVERA'S "WHEN WOMEN SUCCEED" IN OUR GENESIS BLAZER!
Imagine a regular work day. You're over-worked and wishing something great would happen! You check your emails per routine, and there's an email from the CEO of one of (if not, "THE") most influential fashion blogs in the world, Claire Sulmers of Fashion Bomb Daily! That's exactly what happened to me! I thought, "Maybe I subscribed to her email or something and this is just a mass message", but it was really her! She explained that she had been informed of me by celebrity stylist, Daniel Hawkins (Fantasia, Lil' Kim, Laura Govan) and was interested in pieces from the brand. Claire selected our Genesis Lace-up Back Blazer and our Tina High Waist Short to host Tammy Rivera's women empowerment event, "When Women Succeed" in New York. An event that would later air on WeTv's Waka and Tammy: What the Flocka? Paired with a beautiful custom fur, The look was a hit on social media with over 16,000 likes on Fashion Bomb Daily and Claire Sulmers' Instagram alone. This landed the look on Claire's Top Ten Looks of 2019! (Update: The look was also featured on Style Rave's "15 Of The 'Hautest' Ways To Wear Houndstooth" list!)
Claire has been on our list of dream people to dress for a while so this was a dream come true for the brand. We are all about women who take control of their life and aren't afraid to go after whatever they dream of. Even if the path hasn't been laid before, they create their own. This is why we admire her for TAKING a space in an industry that was not set up for black women to soar in it. We admire her for creating a platform within that space that allowed her to give opportunities to other black women to soar as well. It's important to mention here that she does this while still highlighting the talent of other ethnic groups. She has been the example that the fashion industry has needed. It is our honor and pleasure to not only be a part of those impacted by her work, but now to also have her wear Shan Latris!
