M-KO Style


How do you go from cute kid stars to bonafide fashion icons? Ask Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen. The sisters have a unique fashion sense that they've parlayed into to fashion lines. It was always a mystery to me how these two got involved in fashion. Well according to an interview with Mary-Kate her love for fashion didn't come from reading fashion magazines, it started by looking at people. "When you're walking down the street, or you're at a restaurant, someone catches your eye because they have their own look. It goes way beyond what they're wearing-into their mannerisms, the way they smile, or just the way they hold themselves", she says. As for their lines The Row and Elizabeth and James, they flow through the design process together. Mary-Kate says, "An idea will come, whether it's from a movie or a person or a character or a place . . . Then we go through color, silhouettes, and fabric. We sort of put it all together, finding the common threads." Read more of what Mary-Kate had to say at Interviewmagazine dot com.

I saw their interview on Oprah a few weeks back, and was really impressed by their fashions and business sense. My question is, why did they use to dress like they lived in a cardboard box when they've got all this going on??
