Katie Holmes - Katie Holmes Designs For 'Working Moms'.

Katie Holmes developed her Holmes & Yang clothing line especially for "working moms".

The actress established the fashion range with her stylist Jeanne Yang and Jeanne revealed their mission when they started was to create a set of clothes that busy mothers can "depend on".

She said: "Sometimes when life gets really busy you don't want to have to think about what it is you're going to wear and you just want to have certain pieces that you know you can just depend on - what are those pieces? - and so that was kind of our challenge.

"Both of us are working moms, so we're pretty busy, and, having a line, being moms and then having our careers is quite a lot."

The business partners started their line after realising that they were both fans of sewing at home.

Jeanne told NY magazine: "It's so rare, unfortunately, that I actually know people who are into crafting and doing stuff like that.

Katie - who has a four-year-old daughter, Suri, with husband Tom Cruise - said her favourite things to sew are "aprons for the girls, pillows, tablecloths, baby clothes, Barbie clothes."

The pair also agree that making money from the label isn't as important as all the pieces being produced in the US.

Jeanne said: "100 percent of our line is produced here in the States. We can make some of the most beautiful luxury pieces here.

"Kate and I are always talking about how we're Americans, and we want people to realise this, and so our price points - you know we don't have the best margins but it doesn't matter for us."

Katie added: "It's more important that it's made in the USA."
