are there any experts who know what is wrong with my Iles crenata kinme cloud tree?

I bought it last summer, looked great, now this year its leaves are turning paler and yellowing and starting to drop, it does have new shoots growing though. We repotted it into a larger pot last year with tree/shrub compost. it was fine worried I will lose it and it cost so much money, rand the nursery I got it from they are not interested at all!!!!
