Simmons Hounsou has announced plans to part ways with Kellwood Company, the parent property for Baby Phat and Phat Fashions, effective September 1st.
The model-turned-mogul-mama released the following statement about her decision:
“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. I adore all those who have faithfully been with me since the beginning. I’m forever dedicated to my family, fans and customers. 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!”
Don’t worry about Kimora though, she’s got plenty to keep her busy. Besides her kids Ming Lee, Aoki Lee and Kenzo Lee, she’s also still head chick in charge for the KLS collection, Kouture by Kimora and Fabulosity lines, and her hit Style Network reality series, ‘Kimora: Life in the Fab Lane,’ is currently shooting its fourth season.
