I was so happy to find out yesterday that Mary Kate and Ashley Olsen received the coveted and honorable award for Womenswear Designer of the Year at this year’s Council of the Fashion Designers of America (CFDA) Awards. The award was won for their luxury label The Row, which is cleverly named after London’s Savile Row, a shopping street in Mayfair (Central) London which is famous for it’s finely tailored and traditional men’s “bespoke tailoring”. The name of this line is clever, as you’ll see in pictures below, because their collection tends to have a masculine flair to it. Cool huh?!
For those of you who don’t know, the CFDA awards is like the Oscars of Fashion, and the Womenswear Designer of the Year Award, with past winners like Proenza Schouler (2011) and Marc Jacobs (2010), is said to be the biggest award of the night. These talented, ever-chic and business savvy twin tycoons have definitely sealed their place in the fashion industry. Check out some pieces I selected from their 2012 Resort Collection:
These girls have clearly shown the Fashion Industry that they should be taken seriously. Until next time!
