Page Six reports that the Dawson’s Creek actress has ended her partnership with former stylist and business partner, Jeanne Yang due to “interpersonal conflict.”
A representative for the label, which was founded in 2009, confirmed the news.

Just less than 18 months ago, Holmes & Yang made its debut at New York Fashion Week. The Telegraph’s Luke Leitch was there, and at the time said the collection: “deserves credit for simply being an extremely well-constructed selection of sleek, don’t-scare-the-horses womenswear. It is also all made in America, a drum Holmes was keen to bang.” It was stocked at Harvey Nichols in the UK.
Holmes divorced fellow actor Tom Cruise in 2012, and relocated with their daughter, Suri, from Los Angeles to New York. Yang is based in LA, putting a firm distance between them.
But according to a source, Yang, “enjoys the spotlight way more than Katie does. Things have definitely soured between them.” There were also rumours that Yang had been leaking information about Holmes and Cruise following their divorce.
