Kimora Quits Baby Phat… No Phat Fashions For Mrs. Fabulosity This Fall

- By Bossip Staff

Kimora Lee 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.

    i never liked her tube-necked azz and her kids act like spoiled brats, except the baby.

    she made money off gullible black women, the same ones that she talked mad ish about when she talks about growing up mixed.

  • ThickLikeCornbread

    Yea, I NEVER thought Baby Phat was cute. I have seen some scrubs that I looked at 2 or 3 times, but i never bought them.

    He11, I didnt even like the purses.

    And, it didnt help that the ONLY stores u saw Baby Phat in were Citi Trends & Burlington Coat Factory.

    Baby Phat= Ghetto chic. Not my style.

  • Over it....

    Cheap azz clothes w/ that big azz cat EVERYWHERE…..girl BYE!

  • IHateLongWindedPRStatements

    “Don’t worry about Kimora though, she’s got plenty to keep her busy”

    I honestly do not think anyone cared to the point of worry.

    Kellwood BEEN losing money on Baby Phat – go look at the financials.

  • Rolly

    When the line 1st came out she had some cute items but once she got customers everything go cheap looking. The shoe line was horrid. The purses were nothing to talk about. But those big azz foil cats on the back of everything is what killed it! Who wants to be a walking billbord?
