Katie Holmes isn’t wasting any time revamping her life, post-Tom Cruise. Now that she’s nailed that “he’s-gone-I’m-free-I’m-free!” glow, the 33-year-old actress is looking to establish herself as a legitimate fashion designer because she’s a strong woman who can make her own damn decisions now.
Per Vogue UK, the Holmes & Yang line that she designs with her stylist Jeanne Yang will debut its spring 2013 collection on Wednesday, September 12 at the Box – Lincoln Center during Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week. The official MBFW schedule includes the event’s listing, so it’s really happening. Given that the Box is "a 125-seat studio venue which has been specifically designed to house intimate presentations," I’m wondering who will receive a golden ticket to the exclusive event, assuming that Holmes (and Baby Suri!) show up for it.
Other famous faces showing this season include celebrity stylist Rachel Zoe, who thoroughly impressed editors and buyers at her off-site debut presentation last September. She’ll show at the Studio – Lincoln Center on September 12 at 1pm. Reality star Whitney Port of the guilty pleasure series The Hills will also be showing at the Studio on September 12 at 5pm.
As for celebrities not showing this time around, it looks like Gwen Stefani’s L.A.M.B. is off the agenda, as the stylish pop star is busy promoting a new album and hosting fundraisers for President Obama. And Victoria Beckham must be occupied with her fellow Spice Girls post-Olympics reunion across the pond. Another notable absence on the schedule is Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen’s CFDA-approved luxury line, The Row. Hmmmm.
