Angela Simmons: Sexy. Savvy. Successful.

You appear to be a very transparent person. 

I’m pretty transparent. I think that we’re all transparent to a certain degree. I let them see as much as possible — especially young females who have so many questions for me. I’ve been through the same things that they’ve been through, and I’m just 25 now, so at least I can shorten their distance if they’ve got a problem going on.

But, it’s not just about the website with you. You also launched a fashion line. Can you give us some details on that?

It’s really feminine, but still dressed down, because that’s how I am. I think that an outfit should be able to carry you from day to night. It should be something that you can wear with sneakers, or something that you can wear with heels. That’s the kind of girl that I am. I’m a New York City edgy girl on the go, so the clothing line is fun and young … it’s also something that you can keep forever. I try to make pieces that people will be able to carry on for a long time. I want my pieces to be affordable, so it’s a very moderate-end line that you can actually buy and be fashionable for the price.

You’ve stepped out a bit more as an individual, and not just as a member of this powerful family. Was that a conscious decision?

There comes a point in your life where you just evolve, and that’s where I’m at right now. This is me. I’ve just grown into this person. I always get people asking me if it’s a lot of pressure being a role model, or is there a lot of pressure because I come from this family, or that my dad is a reverend … and you know what, it is, but at the same time, I am who I am. I’m not faking it.
