Baby Phat founder Kimora Lee Simmons is leaving the company she launched 14 years ago.
“After 14 years of conceiving and nurturing Baby Phat, it’s time for me to move on and further expand my other businesses and create a new phenomenon,” Simmons said. “I adore all those who have faithfully been with me since the beginning.
“I’m forever dedicated to my family, fans and customers,” Simmons said. “My inspiration has always come from the fabulous women who have been with me through the years as we’ve grown from young party girls to power players! We’re ready for our next journey together and we’re taking a whole new generation of incredible young women with us. Girl power unite!”
Simmons’ empire includes KLS collection, Kouture by Kimora and Fabulosity. She is currently filming the fourth season of her Style Network reality series, Kimora: Life in the Fab Lane.
