Baby Phat  NY Fashion Week Fall 2002

Fashion Ledge - Baby Phat

"Make It Hot Like Fire" Baby Phat by Kimora Lee Simmons Fall 2002

A red-hot mirror image runway…. was lit and energy and passion started walking down the long aisle… it was all Kimora Lee Simmons' fall 2002 7th on Sixth tent fashion show. The Asian-inspired prints made the models appear as " urban-princess' " from a folktale that Kimora might have read to her little one, Ming-Lee Simmons. The colors were so vivid and used with every combination of denim lace silks and tulle, it seemed as if there wasn't a restriction on ideas every garment projected a very sexy theme. Even though Baby Phat derives from big brother Phat Farm, Kimora gives us something other than smaller more fitted versions of Phat Farm, she put it on the table that women love urban wear and redefines it by making it ultra-feminine.

Kimora, the creative director and wife of hip-hop mogul and philanthropist Russell Simmons, began as a model at tender age of thirteen and the youngest to walk for CHANEL. The ex-model looks to bring couture sophistication to a "young woman's" (by young woman she means the feeling not by the age) clothing line at reasonable price. Being over the top sexy, and with fashion running deep in her blood at an early age; she was the natural choice for a line of this magnitude. Energic and her strong opinions are reflections of her molding of the imagery that Baby Phat currently exudes.
