Kimora Lee Simmons Leissner reclaims Baby Phat, her old streetwear brand created to bring a voice to women of color in fashion, in part because of the influence of daughters Ming Lee (19) and Aoki Lee (16). Having personally purchased the label under undisclosed circumstances, she will relaunch Baby Phat by summer of this year. In the early 2000s, the brand enjoyed sales of over $1 billion before Leissner separated from Baby Phat in 2010. In 2013, she launched another brand bearing her own name that she plans to keep separate.
