Telegraph UK Interview/Shoot
The Olsen's talk to the Telegraph about conquering the world of luxury fashion with The Row.
When she was starting college, Ashley Olsen did something many fashion-conscious teenagers do: she set out on a quest for the perfect T-shirt.
But Ashley had more resources than most students, so she employed a factory in Los Angeles to work with her and create what she had in mind.
It took a year and a half, on and off, but eventually she and her twin sister, Mary-Kate, got something they felt was right not only for their petite frames, but also on all the other women of various ages and sizes they tried it on.
The secret, they say, is the French seam running down the back. 'It's cut from one piece of fabric,' explains Ashley, who is the older by a few minutes, and tends to take the lead when discussing business. 'It's about the drape and the fabric. And finding the balance between the two.'
'It's made on a lingerie machine,' adds Mary-Kate, fingering the silky, diaphanous sample that is hanging on a rail behind us. 'A lot of thought has to go into it.'
Having put in so much effort, they decided to try to sell this T-shirt, and came up with the concept of The Row, a high-end, luxury clothing label based in New York, manufactured mainly in America but also in Italy, and named to evoke the kind of quality tailoring and fit synonymous with London's Savile Row.
Just a little notice to let you all know I'll be going into hospital for treatment of my eating disorder for about 3-4 months on Wednesday 24th August, I'll have internet access, but it will be limited & updates to the main page & gallery may be a little slower than usual.
However, you can keep up to date with the latest Olsen & site news on our Twitter & Facebook.
