We know Suri didn’t become a fashionista all of a sudden and we’d love to know what she thinks of her mom’s clothing collection. Katie Holmes is preparing to debut as designer at the NY Fashion Week.
For the past five years all that Katie Holmes seems to have been doing was raising a daughter and taking care of a husband. Now that she’s divorced Tom Cruise, we get to see a whole new Katie Holmes. Holmes’ first collection will take the stage at the New York Fashion Week. From what the actress told WWD on Tuesday, for her fashion is all about trying “to make beautiful things”.
Katie Holmes and her business partner Jeanne Yang decided to debut as designers during the New York Fashion Week. Apparently it was just the right time, “because the brand is growing and expanding”. The Holmes & Yang collection already launched at Maxfield’s and her clothing items can be found in the Barneys New York store as well as Forty Five Ten in Dallas.
“We thought we would have something a little more substantial” said Katie Holmes in her interview with WWD. “We’ve been very gradual from the beginning, and part of that has been because we’ve wanted to take the time to get to know the business, get to know the right stores” the 33-year-old actress told WWD.
Katie Holmes’ debut as designer is set for September 12 during the New York Fashion Week. Katie Holmes’ spring/summer 2013 collection will hit the catwalk at the Lincoln Centre. “In terms of the presentation versus the show, we felt a presentation was more appropriate for the clothes we sell” said Suri Cruise’s mother.
“It’s a little more our speed in the way we wanted to go about it, and more of a transition for us from meeting privately with buyers in a hotel room to going right to a big show” said a very confident Katie Holmes.
According to Katie Holmes, her fashion collection is “very simple, with very classic lines”. She told WWD there’s “a lot of silks and leathers and suedes”. And this year’s Holmes & Yang collection incorporates “a lot of new trims”.
“It’s basically pieces that have evolved from basics, but not too far. They’re just nice, well-made luxury items that highlight the woman wearing them” said Katie Holmes of her fashion collection.
