The news, you say? The second-ever Bomb Fashion Show by Fashion Bomb Daily kicked off New York Fashion Week Friday night. Thanks to our sponsors Urban Skin RX, Michelle L Management, and Rayar Jeans, the runway spectacular featured a lineup of thirteen different designers, including photo booths for our guests and celebrity invitees to capture the event. Bombay Sapphire and Nivole provided the beverages, while our favorite brands Shea Moisture and Boujee Hippie provided goodie bags.

First things first: as guests arrived at the event, a glowing picture booth welcomed them for the perfect Instagram moment! A gift bag filled with Shea Moisture products and a ton of other must-haves from our lovely sponsors was waiting at each seat. The presenters' and models' hair was taken care of by Shea Moisture while the catwalk glam was going on backstage.

Before witnessing the newest trends walk down the catwalk, artist Dess Dior stopped by with influencer-turned-entrepreneur Jayda Cheaves to pick up a bag of goodies and pose for a photo with our EIC Claire Sulmers! Dess showed off in Raf Simons, while Jayda looked fierce in a vintage Chanel romper once worn by Lil' Kim.

People socialized and made their way to their seats to watch the performance while holding Bombay Sapphire beverages in their hands. We recognized some of the faces in the front row, including socialite, novelist, and TV personality Iyanla Vanzant, model, designer, and designer Draya Michele, celebrity stylist Misa Hylton, and Real Housewives of Potomac star Ashley Darby.

A spectacular house performance by dancers decked up in all-black costumes and fascinators with crystal embellishments preceded the program. Eva Marcille and our CEO Claire Sulmers, who hosted the event, introduced each designer to the audience one at a time, including Allure Novembre and BruceGlen from the Fashion Bomb Daily Shop as well as Aisha McShaw, DayKeyla Designs, Ade by Femi, Shane Justin, Queen Russia, and others. This year, we're giving you an insider's peek at certain backstage activities. Read on for more information:

Aisha McShaw made a lasting impression on the runway with a colorful collection of designs that were both elegant and delicate. The catwalk featured pants suits, cocktail dresses, jumpsuits, and more that could be worn during the day or on a night out. In addition, Silver & Riley's opulent purses were carried by the models.

Queen Russia later introduced hip-hop royalty aesthetics with a comprehensive black and yellow collection. The collection gave typically formal looks a fresh new look by combining modern shapes with historic jacquards in metallic golds, black plumeria, and lace accents.

Ade by Femi and BruceGlen then entered after a brief pause for a message from Claire and Shea Moisture, giving us a taste of masculine fashion in each of their collections.


Nothing less than what we wanted and expected from BruceGlen was delivered! The street styles with their mix of wearable, accessible neon colors gave off an eager, very "now" feeling.

Hot Miami Styles came next, followed by Daykeyla Designs, which displayed a collection of works with a pan-African influence. The clothing was beaded, patterned, and distinctly tribal, but it could still be incorporated into your current wardrobe.
