While her decision to divorce Tom Cruise may be dominating the headlines, Katie Holmes is remaining focused on her career — notably the fashion line Holmes & Yang which she co-designs with business partner Jeanne Yang.
A spokeswoman for the brand told WWD July 5 that Holmes’ personal matters aren’t affecting the line, with Holmes & Yang in fact taking their label to New York Fashion Week for the first time this September to present the Spring/Summer 2013 collection.
Launched in 2009, the premium clothing line is feted for its simple yet chic day-to-night creations, which are available at selected upmarket retailers in destinations such as Paris, New York and Hong Kong.
The report coincides with an interview Holmes gave in the August edition of US Elle, where she explained she was entering “a new phase” and “coming into her own.”
Showing at New York Fashion Week will place her firmly on the fashion map, alongside fellow actresses-turned-designers the Olsen twins and her close friend the former pop star Victoria Beckham.
New York Fashion Week will run September 6-13.
