Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen are opening up.
The famous twins, now 35, have lived in the spotlight since they starred in “Full House” as toddlers. Since then, they’ve slipped out of Hollywood and into the realm of fashion, but they’ve also done their best to avoid speaking publicly.
The duo recently offered up a rare interview to i-D magazine meant to coincide with the 15th anniversary of their fashion brand, The Row.
“We were raised to be discreet people,” Mary-Kate said when asked about her brand’s modest designs.
“I think that potentially that’s just our aesthetic, our design preference. But that doesn’t mean that we don’t also appreciate something truly ornate or maximal,” Ashley added. “Sometimes a collection even starts quite like that, and then gets pared down. It doesn’t always start from that simplistic place.”
Ashley later said that she and her sister “didn’t want to be in front of” their fashion brand and even didn’t “want to let people know it was us.” They want the focus to be on the product, she explained.
