There was once a time when Mary-Kate Olsen and Ashley Olsen were to of the brightest young acting talents in Hollywood, before then deciding to turn their back on the acting industry and instead turning their attention to the real love, fashion. The twin sisters have enjoyed a huge amount of success on the fashion scene and they have now opened up to reveal the secrets to their success.
Mary-Kate explained, "It's important to control the image of your brand, something we have known since we were very young. It's a lot more work but we're up for it. Design has become really mathematical in a way, and for us, there's a freedom that comes from knowing exactly where we want to go from the start."
While Mary-Kate Olsen and Ashley Olsen have been working very well together over the years, they have admitted that there have been times when they have not exactly agreed on things. One of the biggest things that these sisters disagree on is meeting other designers, with Ashley eager to meet them face to face, while Mary-Kate would rather do things from a distance.
Mary-Kate added, "Sometimes you don't want to meet them. For me, it's interesting to see how different designers have affected other houses throughout the years. When you look at the work of John Galliano or Karl Lagerfeld, it changes your perspective of a house. We are so fortunate to have each other. We hired every person on our team. We have full control, and we're lucky to be under one roof. That you cannot take for granted."
Well whatever it is you have been doing girls, it has clearly been working well for you, so keep it up.
