Los Angeles, CA, United States (AHN) – Kimora Lee Simmons is leaving Baby Phat and Phat Fashions. The former model is moving on from the fashion house that she launched 14 years ago.
Simmons became President of Phat Fashions in 2007 when her ex-husband Russell Simmons stepped down. The label’s parent company, Kellwood Company, will go their separate ways on September 1.
Simmons has been quoted by eonline.com as saying, “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.”
Simmons, 35, also holds other fashion ventures, including KLS collection, Kouture by Kimora and Fabulosity.
She is currently starring in the Style Network reality series, “Kimora: Life in the Fab Lane,” which is now in its fourth season.
