Katie Holmes is headed to fashion week.
Tom Cruise’s ex-wife will be taking a big step forward in her fashion career this September when she puts her fashion label Holmes & Yang on display at the Lincoln Center in New York during Fashion Week. According to the NY Post, this will be Holmes’ first big show and her first time at Fashion Week.
A source told the NY Post:
“This is a big deal for Katie to show in the tents, under the full attention of the fashion editors and the glare of the media scrutiny. They could have done a small show elsewhere, so this proves she and Jeanne are very serious about their business.”
Holmes & Yang was created by the actress and her stylist Jeanne Yang in the fall of 2009. The clothing line has seen a surge in popularity in recent months due to Holmes’ public split from actor Tom Cruise.
David Zyla, an Emmy Award-winning stylist, told Daily Markets:
“Every editor will be at the spring 2013 Holmes & Yang showing this September…. Katie’s divorce and the masterful manner in which she handled it is a shining light onto anything that she does at this moment.”
According to the website, Holmes & Yang is a clothing line that is focused on “easy, timeless pieces that could carry them from day to night, casual to cocktail, work to weekend.” It’s all “heritage-quality” and “proudly made in the USA.”
