Holmes told Women's Wear Daily that the pair decided to take their collection to Fashion Week "because the brand is growing and expanding, and so we thought we would have something a little more substantial."

While the brand has grown, they still decided to go with a presentation format versus a formal runway show because it was "more appropriate" for the type of clothes they make, Holmes told the paper.

Yang told the Los Angeles Times at the presentation that the collection is a balance of casual and  stylish, a feat she says is "often harder than dressing up."

Holmes and Yang launched the line in 2009 .
