Mary-Kate And Ashley Cover The New Issue Of Elle UK

Wednesday, March 7, 2012

Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen are featured on a special double edition of Elle UK‘s latest issue, and the 25-year-old fashionistas dish on their clothing lines and fellow designers they admire.


On their plans to expand their retail business, Mary-Kate tells the mag, “It’s about being creative, but having a bigger vision for that creativity. For a designer to be successful nowadays, they need to know much more than just design. [Tom Ford], his career is astonishing—the way he’s been able to do everything he has wanted to do and really not compromise at all. From fashion to film, it’s such a singular vision.” 


She adds, “Of course we knew about the trend of celebrities as designers, but we’d done that already when we were much younger. I don’t understand the new idea of designers as celebrities either. To me, the Phoebe Philo [Celine designer] kind of modesty is the way to go. We love beautiful things. That’s the only driving impulse.”


Over the years, the twins have launched several clothing collections, including the couture label, The Row, along with the more affordable Elizabeth and James and Olsenboye lines.  So how often do they see eye to eye on designs? “We’re attracted to different things, but we arrive at the same place,” Ashley tells the fashion glossy. “I think we’re probably unaware of how intuitive it might seem from the outside. It’s basically one thought process shared between two people ... We are perfectionists. We’ve always wanted to be closely involved with everything, totally hands on - that’s why it works. If we step away, it stops working. I know it sounds controlling, but that’s how it has to be.”

This is such a great resource that you are providing and you give it away for free. I love seeing websites that understand the value of providing a quality resource for free. It is the old what goes around comes around routine.
