Kimora's New Start IS Her Best Start

I just finished watching the season finale of Kimora: Life in the Fab Lane and I just HAD to blog right afterwards. In this episode, Kimora and her team were putting together a flash mob as a part of another promotional effort and there were some bumps and hiccups along the way. Including a horribly rainy forecast on the day of the event, a feed that seemed as though it wasn't going to go live and what looked like only a sparse crowd. But, just like always, things came together. Kimora danced, the team danced, Ming and Aoki and Kenzo danced, it was just all love. I'm so happy for her. That she and her team are finding new footing and moving..."onward and upward". It's just great. Check out a clip from the show below:

At the end of the episode, Kimora said a few words about how tough the past few months have been, yet how much they've been able to accomplish, and I can only imagine. It makes me so angry to think about how things appear to have unravelled during her parting from Baby Phat, but God knows what he's doing. I try to keep that in mind, but it's tough. I'm sure it's that much more difficult for her. But, the future is bright!

Kimora's website is all shiny and new, she's about to release a new skincare line called Shinto Clinical, a new children's line called Miyoki, has those great fragrances and Hello Kitty merchandise and she is, I'm sure, feverishly working on making her flagship brands, KLS and Kouture by Kimora, more robust. I don't even know her, but I feel her pain, and because she shares so much with us via Twitter :), in moments when I say prayers for my other family and friends, I toss a little request to God to look after KLS and her peeps too.

If you stumbled upon this blog for the first time, hey! :) I don't update it daily, sometimes not even weekly, but I try to keep it fresh with the big things. But, in case there's any wonder about it, I believe that you should refrain from purchasing any Baby Phat clothing items. The way they handled this situation with Kimora and we fans is just deplorable. At the very LEAST they could have sent out a press release announcing her departure. The very LEAST. They think that we are fools and Kimora and her team deserved more respect than they were given.

So, check out often, and leave her some comments! Feedback! That's what she's putting those things up there for! Follow her on Twitter, @OfficialKimora, and most of all, buy her brands!!! I know that you love Baby Phat. I know that it has a special little place in your heart, but continuing to support them is foolish. I'm sorry, but it is. Stand on principle. No respect? No dollars. Let's show Kellwood company that they don't get to disrespect a woman of color this way and they damn sure don't get to treat us like brainless robots. If you missed it, take a look at the flash mob below. I dare you not to smile. :) --Sugar
