27 years ago today two of the most successful women in acting and fashion were born. At just nine months old, Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen were brought by their mother to audition for the part of Michelle Tanner in Full House. Obviously, the girls got the part and played Michelle until they were 9 years old. At age six, Mary-Kate and Ashley became the youngest producers in history.
As they grew older, their style and interests matured. Venturing into the world of fashion, Mary-Kate and Ashley launched their first line The Row followed by Elizabeth and James and TEXTILE Elizabeth and James. The extremely talented duo has an eye for must-have colors and silhouettes while staying on top of new trends. Each with their own sense of style, they work together to create garments of impeccable quality and creativity.
