Fashion Editor Gives Life To Cocktails & Conversation

On a gorgeous Saturday afternoon, Chicago’s fashionistas was treated with “Cocktails With Claire” a signature event hosted by fashion and beauty connoisseur–Claire Sulmers. Miss Diddy LA–CEO of The Brand Group also brought her flair to the line-up.

The Editor-In-Chief of FashionBombDaily, Sulmers has built a loyal following over the years bringing her no nonsense approach to creating and recognizing style and beauty for her followers. Taking the tour on the road hitting Washington, D.C. before coming to town, the event has built anticipation visiting key cities such as Chicago and most recently Atlanta inviting local boutiques and designers to showcase their products.

With the support of brand partners, Toyota, Curls and cocktail sponsor, Hennessy–attendees gathered at the ultra-chic space; Food For Thought in the South Loop. As tastemakers networked and sipped on crafted cognac filled cocktails, they were seated for an in-depth panel discussion led by Sulmers.

The panelists included former NBA player and Chicago businessman; Bobby Simmons, celebrity make-up artists; Ashunta Sheriff and WGCI-FM Morning Co-host; Kendra G. as they discussed the keys to success, motivation in business and sharing advice on fashion and beauty tips.

PR rising star, Catrice Armstrong oversaw the Chicago promotion of the event; making sure it was a memorable event for all.  We can’t wait for the next wave of programming from Clair Sulmers–cocktail-in-hand.
