Barneys stores in NYC and LA have reported that her fashion line Holmes and Yang has seen a huge increase in sales and "has been selling particularly well" since the split. This is despite the fact that her clothes are far fromcheap, with one blouse costing $845 and a dress costing $1,100! And People Magazine is also reporting that some Barneys stores who don't sell the line have started to get questions about it from shoppers!
It seems like the divorce to Tom is shining a light on anything Katie does at the moment, which will only help when it's something of high quality like her clothing. "The way she's getting photographed today, she's in a position to get more exposure than ever before," said a former executive for department store Bergdorf Goodman. "She's not waiting for fashion editors and stylists to come and pull her clothes."
Katie's fashion style also hasn't been going unnoticed from some major names in the game. "I think Katie has great style," said Heidi Klum. "I like a lot of her clothes, especially right now. She has these very beautiful spaghetti-strap camisoles. I love them, and the line. Sometimes these very basic things are the hardest ones to find." Words like that are exactly what Katie needs as she gears up to present her line at New York Fashion Week in September!
