Twins Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen won the trophy for Womenswear Designers of the year at the 2012 Council of Fashion Designer of America (CFDA) Fashion Awards in New York June 4,2012.
Their wining collection “The Row” is an extravagance clothing brand named after London’s historic Savile Row. This means that both Mary-Kate and Ashley have successfully grown from child actresses to genuine fashion designers.
“I’d like to thank you — you,” Mary-Kate, wearing an all-black ensemble, said, turning to her purple-clad twin, as she accepted.
The twins wore from their latest collection from The Row Resort 2013. Mary-Kate’s hair was dyed dark brows, and she was wearing a very simple long-sleeved dress with a waist-sash. She was also wearing a Louis Vuitton black suede peep-toe high heels, and a cute black purse by The Row with a silver Sidney Garber necklace.
While Ashley wore a plum-hued V-neck dress, from The Row collection too, with a willowing rumple down middle, a silver cuff bracelet, and a Manolo Blahnik heels with a purse from their resort collection as well.
Other the being known as the Oscars of fashion. The Olsens’ win solidifies their legitimate place in the industry, moving their label The Row from celebrity clothing line to bona fide designer label.
