Katie Holmes’s Divorce Reportedly Proves Positive for Her Clothing Line
The designer — who recently announced she’ll be showing her line, Holmes & Yang, at New York Fashion Week this fall — has enjoyed some stylish success in the weeks since she filed for divorce from Tom Cruise.
According to FoxNews.com, Barneys stores in New York City and Los Angeles reported that Holmes’s line “has been selling particularly well” since her split (highlights available online include an $845 blouse and an $1,100 dress). And a Dallas Barneys representative “noted that while they don’t sell the line, they are now getting queries about it from enthusiastic shoppers,” Fox adds.
“This is a dream publicity opportunity for the label,” stylist David Zyla tells the site. “The retail customer will pay the collection special notice, not only due to the styling but as art created by a role model who they respect for handling what would have been such a messy situation with such ease and poise.”
Since its inception, the line — co-designed by Holmes’s stylist, Jeanne Yang (pictured above) — has seen an increased presence in Hollywood, too; recently, Heidi Klum (an admitted fan) and Jennifer Lawrence have worn pieces from the label, as has Holmes herself.
