Katie Holmes' Fashion Line Has Been Doing Really Well Since She Dumped Tom Cruise » Gossip - Divorce seems to really suit Katie Holmes.
The day after her separation was announced, the actress was spotted filming Project Runway All Stars; later that week, it was announced that her fashion label, Holmes & Yang, will show at New York Fashion Week for the first time this September; and now there are reports that the label is doing really, really well, sales-wise.
According to reports, Holmes & Yang, which is sold exclusively at Barneys locations, has increased in both sales and customer interest. According to staff members at both New York and Beverly Hills locations, more people are buying Holmes' minimalist color-blocked blouses and shirt dresses than ever before. Even the Dallas Barney's location, which doesn't sell the line, reported an uptick in the numbers of customers who come in and ask about the label.
Looks like the publicity and the poise with which the actress has been handling the speedy split is really working in her and her business' favor.
David Zyla, an Emmy Award-winning stylist, told the Daily Mail that Holmes' divorce placed her in a really lucrative position.
"Every editor will be at the spring 2013 Holmes & Yang showing this September," Zyla said. "Katie's divorce and the masterful manner in which she handled it is a shining light onto anything that she does at this moment."
We're excited to see what she and her business partner Jeanne Yang do with the sudden spotlight! Will you be paying more attention to her clothing label now that she's divorced? Let us know in the comments!
