Sulmers, who launched the website in August 2006, wanted to proudly embrace the savvy, urban fashionista in every multiethnic woman. Fashion Bomb accumulates an estimated 2.4 million monthly visitors and has catapulted into a social media phenomenon with almost a million followers on Instagram.

Sulmers may be a writer, but a significant amount of her time is spent putting a human face to her brand. She attends wave after wave of events, developing related content with her staff...
As a blogger, Sulmers has always found a way to report on issues in fashion around identity politics alongside more neutral coverage of her passion for fashion. Her strategies are creating more space for a diversity of voices in that world, which is probably more than she ever imagined while pursuing her hobby a decade ago.
— Aimee Lutkin, Oxygen, 2016
Eight years ago Claire Sulmers was one of the first style bloggers on the scene when she started The Fashion Bomb. Now, she’s one of ninety-nine most influential bloggers in the world, attending Fashion Weeks from New York to Australia.
— Celia Smith, Essence, 2014
Always with an eye for new trends and celebrities du jour, Claire truly embodies the contemporary city girl, showing a distinguished knowledge of black culture.
— Beatrice Finauro, Vogue.it, 2010
