Kimora: Baby Phat, Phat Farm and Fabulosity Safe

In response to swirling speculation about Baby Phat’s future, Kimora Lee Simmons today issued a curt statement, hinting at possible reorganization at Kellwood Company.

As has been recently reported in the press, Kellwood Company is exploring a number of opportunities to strengthen the company’s financial position, including a possible restructure.

Whatever course that Kellwood should take, I want to ensure my consumers and supporters that this will have no effect on our Phat Fashions business which includes Baby Phat, Phat Farm, and Fabulosity brands, and all of their respective categories. All of Phat Fashions products, including Baby Phat apparel are licensed and manufactured by separate companies operating as licensees, not Kellwood Company, and therefore are operated as independent entities. Therefore, Kellwood’s actions will have no impact on the manufacturing and delivery of our goods. We will continue to take fashion to new heights and provide the same fabulous products for a glamorous lifestyle. All of our businesses remain strong and Baby Phat has recently expanded internationally into over 100 territories. I am, as always dedicated to bringing confidence, beauty and fashion to women all over the world. It’s still the same sexy, sassy and stylish brand that you have known for the past 15 years.

Meanwhile, in Twitterville, all appeared business as usual at Baby Phat today.

“Summer Sizzle…Shop the newest, hottest looks from the Pre-Fall Baby Phat collection. Click link to view. http://www.babyphat.com/shop.php,”  tweeted @BabyPhat.

And Kenzo Was His Name-O

Today Page Six published a report on Kimora’s new baby, revealing his name and the inspiration behind it.

KIMORA has a Kenzo. Kimora Lee Simmons (above) and Djimon Hounsou gave their baby boy the very fashionable name Kenzo Lee Hounsou, inspired no doubt by retired Japanese fashion icon Kenzo Takada. Kenzo, born here Saturday, weighed in at 8 pounds, and was 20 inches long. “He’s a little prince,” said a friend. This is Kimora’s third child — she has two daughters, Ming Lee and Aoki Lee, with her ex-husband, Russell Simmons.
