Kimora Lee Simmons Announces a $1 MILLION DOLLAR Scholarship To Fashion Students!

Kimora Lee Simmons Announces a $1 MILLION DOLLAR Scholarship To Fashion Students!


When God blesses you, the goal is to be able to bless others. And that’s what model/author/fashion designer/mogul, Kimora Lee Simmons just did.

The busy mom of 3 (with one on the way) has created a new $1 million scholarship fund. This fund will underwrite scholarships at the Fashion Institute of Technology, across all disciplines, the Fashion Institute of Design & Merchandising (FIDM) and Rush Teens (a segment of an art-focused philanthropic initiative founded by her ex-husband, Russell Simmons).

“This is like wish fulfillment on my end, to tap into that formal education. I never had someone put money into my career or my business—it’s very tough out there, and it will never get any easier!”

The fund will also include an internship program with KLS Collection, her soon-to-be-launched New York brand.

“For me, there’s so many young people who I feel like don’t have a voice. I hope these scholarships will give access to that untapped talent, to tell the next Jason Wu, Alexander Wang, or Narciso Rodriguez that we believe in them.”

This is a great deed and Kimora’s net worth is reportedly $50 Million dollars so her seemingly “small” contribution (to her) is going to make a HUGE impact on someone’s life. After writing this post, I’m looking into fashion schools now!
