 WOE Magazine to Host “Cover Talk” Featuring Claire Sulmers of Fashion Bomb Daily
WOE Magazine to Launch Third Issue in Partnership with Lord & Taylor’s Chevy Chase

Washington, D.C., May 5, 2017 WOE Magazine – a publication designed to create a culture of excellence for women – is set to release its “Beauty and Brains” issue. To commemorate the release of the third print issue,  Ayo Thomas, creator of WOE Magazine, will host a “Cover Talk” with its cover star, Fashion Bomb Daily‘s, Claire Sulmers, on Saturday, June 3rd, from 1:00pm – 3:00pm at Lord & Taylor’s Chevy Chase location. The “Cover Talk” experience will feature an in-depth conversation with cover star, Claire Sulmers, moderated by EIC, Ayo Thomas, and contributing fashion editor and industry insider, Tamiko White, plus showcase spring trends via a fashion presentation cast by ROE the Agency, highlighting Lord & Taylor’s newest collections. Guests will also enjoy hors d’Oeuvres, a cocktail hour sponsored by Shoe Crazy Wine, a gorgeous dessert bar provided by Basket Treats by Alexis Streets, gift bags, giveaways and more. Ultimately, the “Cover Talk” event will foster an environment of empowerment and camaraderie amongst D.C. and national fashion industry influencers.

 A portion of sales proceeds from “Cover Talk” with Claire will go towards We Can-cer vive – a cancer awareness, patient advocacy nonprofit organization that services ALL CANCERS – and their upcoming mission trip to Honduras, where they’ll strengthen cancer care medical centers in low-resource and underserved countries. 

WOE Magazine strives to empower women in every facet of their lives providing everything from beauty and fashion tips, to self-care and mental health awareness. Unlike other women’s publications, WOE places an extra emphasis on authenticity, NOT perfection.

Claire Sulmers is the founder of Fashion Bomb Daily, one of the top 50 most influential style blogs in the world, and the leading multicultural digital fashion magazine. In addition to helming her pioneering website, Sulmers recently penned her debut memoir, The Bomb Life, which chronicles her professional rise, and trials faced during her ascension to fashion greatness.

On why Thomas selected Sulmers as cover star, “Claire embodies what it means to be a WOE woman; she is void of excuses, and strives daily to succeed, while desiring to impact others. We’re so honored to have Claire cover WOE, and excited to bring her to the D.C. area for a day of fashion, fellowship and inspiration!”
