Stylespiration: Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen

The stunning twin sisters Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen who started their careers as childhood actresses have now made quite a name for themselves in the world of fashion. Although they started their career as actresses they would like to leave their mark in the industry as being successful fashion moguls. They said that from a young age they have always had a love for fashion especially as childhood actresses constantly trying on clothing every day. When speaking with Women’s Wear Daily, the twins said that they would prefer to now remain in the fashion world and away from the cameras because they never truly considered themselves as actresses but that time allowed them to build their brand. As they grew older they began making a name for themselves through their fashion choices. The New York Times declared Mary-Kate a fashion icon as she made a major impact in the fashion arena with her boho-chic look. In 2006, the girls were the faces of Badgley Mischka. These talented girls have various clothing lines ranging from affordable clothing for young girls to a couture fashion label. In 2007, they launched their line, Elizabeth and James, which is a contemporary collection that gets inspiration from various pieces of their own wardrobes as well as vintage fashion. Additionally, the Olsens also have a clothing line for girls sold in Wal-Mart stores for girls’ ages 4-14 as well as a women’s line for J.C.Penny entitled, Olsenboye. Also, they are the co-founders of Stylemint, which is an online store for great tshirts and basics.  Their most prestigious line is their couture fashion label, “The Row” named after London’s Savile Row that they began in 2006.  In 2008, they published the book, Influence which was a compilation of interviews with many prominent people from the fashion industry. The girls most recent project debuted August 7, 2013 as they paired with Norwegian retailer Bik Bok to create a line of sleep and chic clothing with a somewhat grunge touch. So as you can see, it doesn't seem like these girls will stop making an impact on the fashion industry any time soon.
I've included some of the designs from the Spring collections of their lines.
Hope you enjoy!
Until Next Time,
