Ming Lee, 23, is following in her mom’s footsteps and pursuing a career in modeling and fashion. She grew up around Kimora's fashion empire, Baby Phat, and became even more involved after the model-turned-businesswoman bought back the brand and its entities in 2019 after first selling them in 2010.
I want [them] to understand the legacy of the business that was created for [them]. It's been a 20 year plus ride and I want them to understand that."
Ming Lee works both behind the scenes and in front of the camera for her famous mom’s company. She started starring in campaigns for the Baby Phat and Forever 21 collections in 2019 while simultaneously helping to revitalize the brand and expand its reach into cosmetics in 2020.
“It’s going to sound cliche, but my mom really does keep me grounded,” she told Hypebae Beauty in June 2023. “She’s always hammered the value of a dollar into all of us and she’s done an amazing job of supporting us while also doing her best to make us aware of our privilege.”
