• @wwd Kimora Lee Simmons Leissner has some inspiring news on this International Women’s Day — she has bought her company back. The designer, entrepreneur and former model has personally purchased Baby Phat and plans to relaunch the label later this year.

It was worn by major celebrities and hosted elaborate fashion shows.

But their stunning looks are not all the sisters inherited from Kimora. Ming and Aoki have a passion for fashion and are following their mother's footsteps into the business.


Kimora is handing over the reins of Baby Phat to her two daughters who are reinventing the brand for a new generation, and a new lifestyle.

“My mom leaves it up to us, not to say that she doesn’t do anything, but I think she knows that we got it,” said Ming.


Aoki, who begins her Freshman year at Harvard this Fall has restructured Baby Phat to sell direct-to-consumer through their website.

Aoki is more hands-on with the financial side of the business, while Ming commands the brand's design direction as fashion executive of Baby Phat.

Kimora Lee Simmons has a lot to be proud of with these two dynamic young ladies. Congratulations, Kimora.


Kimora Lee Simmons has two sons as well as her two stunning daughters, Ming and Aoki, whom she shares with Baby Phat founder Russel Simmons.

The celebrity designer also shares a son with Academy Award-winning actor Djimon Hounsou, 10-year-old Kenzo Hounsou.

Kimora is now married to Tim Leissner, with whom she shares 4-year-old Wolfe Lee Leissner.

Congratulations on your beautiful family, Kimora.
