You know you've made it when your mug is on the cover of Newsweek magazine - and Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen have DEFINITELY made it! The power-twins grace the latest Newsweek cover, which is dedicated to the empire the duo have built in the fashion world.
The feature gets up-close and personal with the Olsen twins regarding their billion-dollar empire, in which they take readers on a behind-the-scenes peek on what goes on in their world.
From the article:
“With the retailers, we dealt with some tough cookies,” Ashley says. “Their attitude was, ‘Who do these girls think they are?’?”
In their showroom, which is in the offices of Dualstar, the Olsens do business around a banquet-size table decorated with a bouquet of white roses and lilies. Ashley tends to zero in on the technical aspects of the collection. Mary-Kate is more likely to highlight pure aesthetics. Both, however, are adamant about what they want the collection to be. “We really want The Row to be an American luxury brand,” Ashley says. “We believe in not just American by representation but American by make.”
In the meantime, the Olsens apparently have already won Mrs. Obama’s respect in a very public way. She wore their pleated skirt when she appeared in April on The View.
