Baby Phat loses Kimora Lee I have never really owned too much of the Baby Phat collection, although I had a bomber short jacket that I love to death, but I have always respected Ms. Kimora Lee as a smart and successful business woman who is also a mother who loves and support her daughters, just like mines. According to www.theGrio.com, Kimora has split with Baby Phat.
“The fashion world is still abuzz about the departure of Kimora Lee Simmons from Phat Fashions, parent company Kellwood, a move first announced late last month, but which takes effect today. Meanwhile, the fashion icon's loyal fans await word about what she'll do next. The 35-year-old former supermodel had served as President and Creative Director of Phat Fashions, which include: Baby Phat, Baby Phat Girlz, Phat Farm, Phat Premium and Phat Farm Boyz. Simmons began leadership of the brands while married to hip hop mogul Russell Simmons, founder of Phat Fashions. Mr. Simmons sold the brand to Kellwood back in 2004 in a multi-million dollar deal.
Simmons still stands to be a powerful force in fashion; she maintains control over several other lines including KLS, Fabulosity, Kouture, and a Hello Kitty line she started with her daughters.”
She is definitely fabulous with her ideas and I look forward to what she has in store for us fashionistas.
I wonder how many people will continue to wear Baby Phat clothing knowing that Ms. Kimora Lee is no longer the model and main focus.
