Happy Wednesday!
Last night, Fashion Bomb Daily presented its very first Claire Cares and CCW Collective Fashion Presentation for the Jesse Queen Collection.

2016 for Fashion Bomb Daily is all about philanthropy, as we seek to use our platform to give back and empower designers, stylists, makeup artists, photographers, and journalists of color. For our first fashion week presentation, we tapped our community for absolutely everything, from models to makeup artists to hair stylists. Last night, our efforts resulted in a fantastic display for Jesse Queen, a line for tall fashionistas created by Bianca Stewart.

For Fall 2016, Jesse Queen struck a balance between sporty and chic with cardigans furnished with asymmetrical zips, peplumed bomber jackets, floor grazing bell bottoms, form fitting overalls, and tailored suits. Men were given several edgy athleisure looks, including plaid funnel neck coats, varsity jackets, and comfy sweatpants. The offering was forward thinking without the flash, and easy enough to incorporate into anyone’s wardrobe.

We encountered innumerable obstacles in the pursuit of this presentation, even down to the last minute. My flight landed in New York from LA at the exact time the presentation began, and I had to hustle to the hotel, get makeup done, and get there! Before the day of the event, we gave ourselves a little over two weeks to make it werk–and werk we did!

First up, praises to Bianca, the genius behind Shop Jesse Queen. She’s the definition of a Bombshell because she had a dream and went for it. We are so proud of her!

Also a HUGE thank you to Trevor of the Julien Management Group, Corey, creative director Kelley Carter, and Rasheedah Queen. You’re the bomb!

This is just the first of many Claire Cares and CCW Collective Fashion Shows. We’re going to hit it hard in September with an actual runway show featuring an assortment of designers. Stay tuned!
Until then, what do you think?
