[FLY Diary][Quotes] Rip The Runway ‘Viewing Party’ ….

 

It was all a Dream …

 

Wednesday evening, we held a viewing party alongside fellow bloggers Claire Sulmers and Gabi Fresh and models Liris Crosse, Chasity Saunders and Sabrina Athena as well as Designer Kiki Kitty, who all participated in this year’s BET’s Rip The Runway. It was truly a special moment for us, not only were we first time participants but this was the first year they brought in Fashion Bloggers and we were among the first.

Tons of Tastemakers came out to show love as we headed to Highland Park in midtown New York.

EXCITEMENT! I took the liberty of getting some quotes from my fellow participants on their thoughts on the show …

Claire of The Fashion Bomb Daily

“I was super nervous because it was my first time on TV, but Pooch was super fun and put me at ease. I was impressed by the fashion and performances. Overall, it was great and I can’t wait to do it again!”

Gabi of GabiFresh.com

“I had such an amazing time! It was so refreshing to be at a fashion event with energy and fun, something nyfw is still lacking! “

Model, Chasity Saunders

“Year after year BET’s Rip The Runway find’s the perfect way to bring the world an innovative fashion show featuring some of today’s top models, artist and designers. This year they stepped there game up again with a fabulous twist featuring some of today’s top fashion bloggers as well”!

“The average woman is a size 14 and this year I was selected to open the “Size Sexy” segment of the show alongside R&B Crooner Robin Thicke, wearing a gorgeous Qristyl Frazier design! It was an honor to represent the full-figured fashionista of today on a national stage. I commend BET for inclusively showing every woman in America no matter what size they are that they too can be fashion forward and look glamorous, curves and all”!

Model/Actress, Liris Crosse 

“Rip The Runway” this year committed to showing a variety of designers this year from all genres so that no viewer could feel left out when watching. The show also showed a variety of performers exhibiting why “Rip The Runway” is the perfect marriage of music&fashion.I was sproud to represent Qristy Frazier’s line on the show. My new campaign for her Nirvana line debuted last night as well on her site www.QristylFrazierDesigns.com

 

Model, Athena Sabrina

“As a model from urban culture I find it frustrating that we don’t have many outlets to express our level of professionalism and pride in our craft to our peers. In a media full of misrepresentation of “urban” women I appreciate BET/Rip the Runway for granting us the opportunity to set a positive example of professional industry MODELING to younger generations.”

Designer, KiKi of K.Milele

I love that this year’s RIP The Runway was able to portray real “Urban” Fashion. “Urban” has been a dirty word for so many years, only being associated with large logo, baggy clothes, and crazy colors. When in essence the Urban culture, can’t be placed in a box. Urban fashion looks hit every angle the spectrum and Rip The Runway Represented that beautifully.
The Red Carpet segment which highlighted my brand, K.Milele, is a perfect example of on trend contemporary looks that we as Urban youth/adults have always embraced but were never credited for.
Thanks BET for properly representing today’s Urban culture.

-Step into the good times below …

[Video] Roc Style Series feat. Claire Sulmers (The Fashion Bomb)…

Via Roc4life

Ladies and Gentlemen, its time for yet another episode of Roc4Life’s Roc Style series. Roc Style is a series of interviews with various artists, tastemakers and trendsetters where we discuss fashion, personal brand and, of course, Rocawear’s influence on their style.

We kicked off the series earlier in the month with Roc Nation songbird Bridget Kelly and have since chatted up Melanie Fiona and Audra the Rapper.

This week, we’re continuing with the founder of The Fashion Bomb Daily, Claire Sulmers. Five years and counting, The Fashion Bomb remains one of the web’s premiere go-to sites for fashion updates. Claire sat down with us to talk personal style, fashion forecast and what’s next for the Fashion Bomb.

Personal Style in Three Words: “I’m classic, because I like very subtle, neutral colors. Bling, because I like big jewelry. Saucy, because every woman should dress in clothes that flatter her figure.”

Style Inspiration: “I like to look at women who are very well put together.”

Rocawear: “Rocawear has over the years continued to evolve and grow with its customers.”

Press play to watch Claire talk personal style with yours truly.

This was one of the best accolades that Mr. Simmons could ever receive, amongst thousands of his business peers and colleagues. The room was definitely filled with business heavyweights but Simmons took home one of the top awards that any business owner could ever receive.
