Kimora Lee Simmons is the second Simmons to bow out of Phat Fashions following her ex-husband, Russell Simmons', exit a couple years back. Last week, Kimora tweeted that she was stepping away from the clothing company, a division of Kellwood, effective September 1. Reports WWD:
Simmons, who was president and creative director of Phat Fashions, with labels such as Phat Farm and Baby Phat, also declined to comment on the reasons for the split on Twitter, though that didn't stop her from continuing to tweet in her usual dramatic manner about it. "Sometimes we have limited choices in life," she tweeted. "We have 2 RIDE the WAVE baby! Team FABULOSITY!"
