As mentioned in a previous post, I have been a huge fan of Mary Kate and Ashley Olsen ever since I can remember and to this day I still have my collection of their many movies, books and even Olsen twin barbies 😛
Even though I’ve grown up seeing them as actresses, I now see them as talented, young designers taking the fashion world by storm. In an interview in The Edit for net-a-porter, they mentioned they were worried they wouldn’t be taken seriously in the fashion industry because they have gone from actresses to designers. In 2012, The Council of Fashion Designers of America named Ashley and Mary-Kate as Womenswear Designers of The Year and this proved that they weren’t just celebrities…they are designers and have created timeless and elegant collections season after season. You’ll notice in their collections that they focus on luxury pieces that are comfortable, relaxed and simplistic with a timeless touch.
The Row was established in 2006 and the brand includes a range of ready-to-wear womenswear, handbags and eyewear.
To get a taste of what to expect with The Row, here are my favourite looks from their Spring 2014 Ready-to-Wear Womenswear
