Suri Cruise: Budding Fashion Designer like Mom Katie Holmes?MariaLianos
The little fashionista already likes to alter her own clothing, just like her mama.
Katie Holmes was the youngest of five children and would receive hand-me-downs from her older siblings. She would customize them herself.
The 31-year-old actress and wife of Tom Cruise now has her own clothing line, Holmes & Yang. Her 4-year-old daughter seems to be following in her footsteps; she too enjoys altering her own clothing.
“Suri and I do that now with her clothes,” says the former Dawson’s Creek star. “Or rather, she does it. She says, I want this sleeve cut,’ and it’s like, Okay, we’ll cut it.’ She picks out all of her own clothes and has since she was one-and-a-half.”
Katie began designing clothes for her daughter soon after her birth. “I started making clothes for Suri when she was born, designing dresses, and then having seamstresses sew them, because I don’t sew very well.”
“As a child, I was always drawing clothes, and I’ve always loved fabrics, and when Suri was born, I wanted to have certain things be from me and created just by me for her,” Katie says.
Katie is in Toronto filming the miniseries The Kennedys.
