Newly single Katie Holmes takes on fashion industry

There is no stopping newly-single American actress, Katie Holmes. The star mom made her mark at New York Fashion Week on Tuesday where she and designer Jeane Yang presented their Holmes & Yang collection to buyers and the press.

The 33-year-old who just recently divorced from movie star, Tom Cruise, was seen taking the time to perfect one of her looks on a model. The collection is typical of Katie’s effortlessly chic style.

Holmes & Yang featured sleek tailored pants, jackets with clean lines, mid-length dresses in warm and neutral tones, as well as lots of black. The designer opted to present their looks in a simple static fashion instead of a runway, explaining:

“In terms of the presentation versus the show, we felt a presentation was more appropriate for the clothes we sell.

“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.”
