STYLE 101: had the extreme pleasure of meeting this woman, about a year ago, in the city of lights (Paris), towards the end of the F/W '09 European collections. She gave us an exclusive 'guided-tour' throughout the town and whisked us away into a high-fashion-fantasy, as we attended shows such as Yves Saint Laurent and Alexander McQueen.

From Atlanta, Georgia to New York City, and finally settling in Paris, France in the fall of '08, Sulmers set out to conquer the fashion world, one style at a time. Her online identity, The Fashion Bomb (a daily destination for the urban fashionista), was founded in 2006, just three years after she graduated magna cum laude (with highest honors), from Harvard, holding a B.A. in Romance Languages and Literatures and African-American studies. She has amassed a strong following of 'thousands' of fashionistas who react to her advice and tips on shopping, lifestyle and celebrities.
