Actress Katie Holmes has thrown herself into her work following her split from Tom Cruise, making plans to host her first runway show at New York Fashion Week this autumn.

The former "Dawson’s Creek" star, who filed for divorce from her husband of five years on June 28, has put on a brave face in the wake of the media fallout, on Monday filming a guest-judge TV spot for hit U.S. series "Project Runway All Stars".

And now it appears the actress-turned-designer is stepping out of Cruise’s shadow by arranging to present the Spring 2013 collection of her line Holmes & Yang at the prestigious event in September, according to Women’s Wear Daily.

The 33-year-old launched the label with her stylist best friend Jeanne Yang in 2009 but the pair has yet to display its line at a major fashion function.
