“Project Runway” celebrity judge Katie Holmes debuted a variety of ensembles from her new Holmes & Yang spring 2013 clothing line at New York Fashion Week to a select group of buyers, fashion editors and fashion followers at the hoity-toity Lincoln Center tents, and the reviews are in. How did she fare?
“It all looks very much like Katie,” fashion writer Eric Wilson of The New York Times tweeted. Allie Hagan, author of “Suri’s Burn Book” referred to the statement as a “burn.”
It’s probably not a good idea for a would-be designer that the models on the runway appear to have raided your own closet.
Despite the setback, there were other tweets that were less critical. In Style editor Ariel Foxman liked a black-and-white dress. And Glamour‘s fashion director Anne Christensen liked a navy moto jacket so much that she called it “great.”
Bobbi Brown — who recently signed Katie Holmes as her first-ever celebrity model, did the make-up for the show.
Fashion authorities, such as like Women’s Wear Daily and Style.com have yet to publish full-length reviews from the show, but Katie Holmes is apparently not too worried about the opinions of others, and said that she felt confident in her designs, and is not afraid to fail. Here is what she said:
That is what she told one media outlet, when asked about her taking a whack at the fashion business. “At least you tried,” she said. “It’s usually the people who haven’t tried who are the naysayers.”
Naysayer, of course, is another word for tastemakers and professional critics.
