Fashion Icon: The Olsen

Thursday, October 17, 2013

Hey Guys,

 I love these two women, I grew up watching them on television, and also becoming such a fashion powerhouse with The Row.  Mary Kate and Ashley Olsen are fashion Icon and they are making a permeant mark on the industry. Now they are on the cover of The Edit. You can get all their looks from Net- a- and check the article below and more on The Edit.

At 27, the sisters have been famous since they were both cast to play Michelle Tanner in the US sitcom Full Houseat just nine months old  allegedly due to neither crying when being held by a television executive. Theyve been involved in fashion since they were six years old. [On Full House] we would be in six-hour fittings three times a week, because we had to wear 12 different outfits, Ashley recalls. We were designing clothes for ourselves as we were so petite, Mary-Kate adds. So I think that is when we became obsessed with fit, and now the obsession has become a profession.

Growing up in the spotlight comes with its share of paparazzi attention. There is a threshold in New York, and once you pass that and are considered a New Yorker, they leave you alone, says Ashley. But were at the office every day, then home or out for dinner, so there arent the opportunities for them to take pictures. For the most part you try and avoid it [I do], at least.  

When asked if theyve been approached for high-profile design positions over the years, Mary-Kate answers steadily that they are just really focused on The Row at the moment. Ashley, however, smiles cheekily and finishes her sisters sentence: But we could probably help them a little...
