Katie Holmes Issues Statement after Closing 'Holmes & Yang' Fashion Line (Exclusive)

Katie Holmes has broken her silence about her and longtime stylist Jeanne Yang‘s fashion line Holmes & Yang.

The pair shared in a joint statement given exclusively to JustJared.com on Monday: “After five years, both Katie Holmes and Jeanne Yang have decided to close their clothing line, Holmes & Yang.”

The statement continued, “Katie and Jeanne remain close friends.”

Katie and Jeanne dressed many top celebrities together in Holmes & Yang including Rihanna, Amy Adams, Jennifer Lawrence, and Olivia Wilde.

Busier then ever, Katie will soon be promoting her dystopian flick The Giver, out August 15, with Meryl Streep, Jeff Bridges, Alexander Skarsgard, Taylor Swift, Cameron Monaghan, Brenton Thwaites, and Odeya Rush.

Although Jeanne, one of Hollywood’s top male stylists for the past decade, is notorious for never confirming her client roster, sources tell us that she dressed top talent for last night’s Academy Awards including Oscar winners Christian Bale and Alfonso Cuarón, who just took home Best Director for Gravity.

    K-Flop - It's Official Says:

    ‘still friends’ – hmmmm, o-k

    ‘decided to close their clothing line, Holmes & Yang’ – already leaked by page 6 and not a surprise to those who’ve seen the clothing line and price tag. obvious decision.

    looking forward to the trailer, promotions and pre-reviews for K-Flop in “The Giver”.

    sure Jeanne will be ok returning to being a stylist to the stars.

    Not much of an exclusive since there is no word on K-Flops other projects – Days & Nights, Mania Days, and Miss Meadows.

    Also, How’s Alterna and Bobbi projects going….I mean …on the books (i.e. financial profit)?

    2014 The Year of K-Flop?

    whatever Says:

    so who leaked to page 6 a few days ago?
    I think they had a talk and are both trying to come out looking good.
    They both did some serious name dropping in that joint statement. Just like a divorce when they say they are still friends well if you are still so close why split?
    PR statements are always full of DUNG.
    what else will go wrong for KH/JL in 2014-15?

    whatever Says:

    lol at notorious for never mentioning her clients and then they list them and claim a “source’ told them. Yeah, this is all pr bs for sure.Ms Yang does have a big mouth and loves to name drop and seek attention.
    If we get “sources” talking about Holmes soon we can probably assume it’s her in retaliation for the page 6 comment.

    Cari Says:

    I’m sure it was a business decision. The line was faltering big time. And probably weeping money from lack of sales. The reviews were never glowing. It was definitely not high end fashion and they charged way too much. There was nothing distinctive about the line. Some of the colors and designs were just plain ugly, other pieces like the camisoles you could find anywhere with quality better and prices cheaper. And as much as KH touted the line as something for busy moms who need classic pieces, it wasn’t. It was overpriced, often made of silk (like that will stand up to a baby) and in sizes 0-8 for the most part. Not to mention the majority of the pieces hit the sale rack almost as soon as they came out. KH also never showed the devotion to the line that it needed. Victoria Beckham spends a great deal of time on hers. Jessica Simpson hires only the best to design hers. Same with Gwen Stefani. These women also hired savvy business people and marketing/personnel to manage the line. KH did not. The only question is why didn’t she pull the plug earlier on this disaster.

    Katie needs to go to school and get a job
    maybe a nurse? or teacher?
    she needs to move on a admit defeat

    So, another opportunity given to Katie and she just didn’t cut it.
    She has been given every chance under the sun to shine but she and her few fans need to realize she just doesn’t have the talent nor the “IT” factor to be a real success in Hollywood.
    Plenty of child or teenage actor don’t make it after initial success of what they did as a child. She needs to accept this.
    Some say she was known or well liked before 2005 but her audience was mainly teenagers who have grown up since then. She was not on the world stage at that point.
    She did go Batman but most say she was the weakest link.
    If not for her marriage she would not have been given so many chances since then.
    What has she really shinned in? anyone? Bueller???

    Free at last! Says:

    That ‘fashion line’ has been painful to look at, particularly with the one that all models simply stood there for the very few invited to look at.
    Now that KHo has no where to pimp out Suri for attention, Yang’s daughters have no use of her.
    KHo doesn’t need to borrow Yang’s daughters to stage play dates anymore.
    Don’t think Yang’s daughters would love to carry Suri’s junk to parade on the street either!
    Win-win!

    @Bijoux:
    The weakest link seems to be KHo’s trademark.
    Think about ‘Mad Money’.
    How about ‘All My Sons’, she barely avoid embarrassing herself.
    Think about ‘Son of No One’.
    The list can go on.

    The number 05 is mystical to katie. 05 years of marriage, 05 years of Holmes & Yang …..today, she does not have the $ $ $ $ cash she had during the TomKat.
    Because the exclusivity in JJ? TMZ, Daily Mail has more influence. I think Katie wants to focus on the profession of actress.

    The invejos who posted up the bad comments about KH, at least she tried something (H & Y) and left the shadow of someone (TC). And you bitter and ugly women, will continue behind the computer looking for KH and wishing her failure. Ridiculous. Long Life for jealous.

    Hugs K-Flop.

    Bijoux Says:

    Anne, weren’t you the one that was picking on poor Bella who isn’t in the public eye at all?? Yet you call others bitter or jealous for commenting on Katie who is in the public eye by choice? That is rich and very funny.
    Hypocrite much?

    @anne:
    Don’t be ugly and bitter, KHo only got to do somthing b/c of Tommy Gurl’s money from her bearding contract, which she got her out-of-wedlock daughter into it.
    She leased out her daughter to be TommyGurl’s prop. Now the karma is biting. Yeah, I gloat, simply b/c it’s funny.

    Missy Says:

    Just a couple of weeks ago I saw a comment on twitter from someone who claimed that their step-father was training people for a clothing company for Katie Holmes. At the time, I assumed they were talking about Holmes&Yang. Now I wonder if she’s starting a new clothing line? She started H &Y with Jeanne Yang who was Tom’s stylist and Heather McQuarrie (sp) who is the wife of Tom’s bussiness partner Chris McQuarrie. I just think Katie is trying to start fresh and strike out on her own.
    People always compare her to Victoria Beckham, but remember Victoria’s lines struggled for a long time. It was only after she over-hauled her design team and started fresh, that she finally succeeded. Perhaps, Katie is trying to do the same.

    Jo Says:

    Misty that may be true we don’t know but if it was a few weeks ago maybe they were still trying for H&Y.
    I just really doubt that Holmes would try this again. If she does she is more delusional than I had thought. She should cut her losses and move on.
    She isn’t a good designer or someone who has the fame right now to carry a line. Her best ‘sell by’ date has expired for this sort of thing. I don’t like Jessica Simpson’s line for me but I acknowledge she had a market and good price range and at the time of her popularity. People aren’t going to run out and buy things in droves for Katie’s name.

    @K-Flop – “invejos”: @Free at last!:
    :-* smoochies :-* ?????I do not understand what you mean.

    What you say is horrible. I think Tom is not the biological father of Suri, the more I see it Mapother gene. There is blood. Katie did not rent her daughter. She married with a sterile man who could not take it publicly (career) and she agreed to lie.

  16. 16
    You gotta be kidding me Says:

    @15
    that doesn’t make any sense. She got pregnant before they were married. So you are saying just a couple of months after they started dating he got his cousin involved and she agreed to do this big lie? So was so overwhelmed by Tom that she agreed to all of this and was still so ott about him a year or so later when they got married and she was then living the lie? It takes a lot of imagination to believe all of that. The only reason people think his cousin is because they see how much Suri looks like Tom and they don’t want to admit it is his child.

    Megan Says:

    @anne: Yeah, that’s why he SUED that magazine for what they said about his daughter. What man, would pay POPEYE child support for a ******* that’s not his? Come on people, don’t let social media make you more STUPID than you already are. With the way they whole divorce went down and with all the headaches, I promise you had Suri not been his daughter, it would have been a whole different story. POOR GUY GOT TRAPPED INTO MARRIAGE WITH A RETARED, PREMATURE, MENTAL CASE OF A CHILD-WOMAN.

    anne Says:

    @You gotta be kidding me: @Megan:
    Tom fought for adopted children and not only fought his biological daughter? Full custody is not common in the USA, only when the father / mother is not appropriate.
    Tom (I love) was criticized for exposing her daughter to Paps. Now with your picture so bad, no photo? Strange. I think he was kicked out of the life of Suri. She had something on him and threatened to go to press.
    Poor Suri, what a mess.

    I’ll wait MI5.

    You gotta be kidding me Says:

    @18
    You just pull this crap out of your butt and you have no idea about any of this or if/when he has last seen his daughter.

    Cari Says:

    @anne: Nicole had two miscarriages while with Tom. A German magazine said he was sterile. Tom sued and won. To win he probably had to give a sample under controlled conditions. So there is no reason Suri isn’t Tom’s bio daughter.

    annie Says:

    To me Suri looks more and more like tom everyday.
    I agree with Missy, don’t know why, but I also think that she’s branching out on her own.
    Remember, she doesn’t talk much to the media about things, nor has he, so there is a lot of speculation going on about everything!
    I agree Holmes/Yang was very expensive for what it was, but for me personally it was very wearable.
    At this time in her life, Katie is mixing with women, who have done things themselves, started business themselves, she is seeing how they operate, she attends conferences, with producer Jane Rosenthal who started up the Tribecca film festival with Robert Dinero and her life now and
    how she’s living it seems a whole different

  22. 22
    annie Says:

    Also her association with Bobbi Brown.

    anne Says:

    Believe me. All this confusion was unexpectedly good for TC, these times we wake up to reality. He already has a career of prestige and a huge fan base (myself included). No more “weddings”, now is only in dating, like DiCaprio, Clooney.
    Both (TC / KH) are rich, beautiful and famous. I am a poor stranger who is in front of the computer with nothing to do.
    Good luck to both especially for Suri, single innocent here.

  24. 24
    anne Says:

    @annie:

    I only see Katie on Suri. More arriving this thread, Tom is the legal father, period.
    Friend, let’s hope the new business KH. I did not like the media be saying that one of the reasons for the end H / Y, was Yang leaking information divorce. It seems that Katie wants to play Yang underneath the train and pose as the victim.

    Hugs. I hope you had a good carnival.

    Brandy Says:

    To Cari:
    I think Nicole once said or it became known that she was the one that had a hard time having a child when they were married.
    Her two daughters now she had a bit of artificial help with.
