• @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. In its heyday in the early Aughts, Baby Phat was one of Phat Fashions’ most profitable brands with a wide variety of product categories and sales in excess of $1 billion. It was worn by major celebrities and hosted elaborate fashion shows. As for the relaunch, she tells WWD: “We’re working fast and furiously and have a lot up our sleeves.” Report: @jeanpalmieri . . #wwdnews #kimoraleesimmons #babyphat #internationalwomensday

“It definitely made us bolder because whether you slump your shoulders and hide in the back or you stand tall and smile, you’re going to be on the billboard anyway. So you might as well OWN IT, SMILE BIG, and just GO FOR IT because whether you like it or not, you are in the public eye.” -Ming & Aoki Words cannot express how proud I am to have raised such intelligent, beautiful, and confident young women! Mama loves you both so much and we’re all so proud of you! ♥️👯♀️🥰❤️ A big thank you to @teenvogue 🎉 #mybabies #dontcallitacomeback #babyphat #thecatisback #curlyhairdontcare
TAKING BABY PHAT TO A NEW GENERATION
“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.
CHIPS FROM THE OLD BLOCK
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.
