In the Los Angeles social scene, many celebrities have used their stardom status to reach new heights in the fashion industry. In fashion today, fashion houses, lines, and designers have come from some of Hollywood’s “Most Famous.” Although in this realm of entertainment, some actors and actresses catch their fiery pop-culture stature, it does not always lead to automatic success. However, a couple celebrities have broken this mold into the coveted fashion world (such as , Victoria Beckham, etc.).

More than just launching new lines and designing new concepts, these stars have surpassed through their five-minute fame into well-respected, elitist fashion positions. Whether springing an entirely new vision of fashion or anticipating meticulous details to create a sacrosanct collection, these famed stars have worked their way to become our fashion idols, moguls, and icons. The question remains: How did they get there?

Two celebrities who have made this seamless transition from stardom to fashion-fame are sisters who have worked in the entertainment industry since the early ’90s: The Olsen twins.

Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen probably remain the most prominent twins in the
fashion industry today. Starting from child acting stardom, the two
acquired their fortune by turning their celebrity status into fashion
acclaim. Most notably recognized for their appearances on warm-hearted
sitcom “Full House,” the two twins created separate, respected identities
as fashion moguls in the modern fashion world. It all started with when the
two were merely toddlers.

From beginnings as child stars, it was a wary, enduring journey for the two
sisters to make their way into fashion history. Although the two weren’t
the only fashion stars who got their start in television (not unlike Nicole Richie), the sisters broke through their acting fame in order to pursue
a fashion career. Before their mogul status, the two were most commonly
known as Michelle Tanner on “Full House.” Starting as babies in 1992, the
sisters were cast for the role of the youngest daughter in the Tanner
household. The duo continued onward to act in separate roles in subsequent
films and series such as “The Adventures of Mary-Kate & Ashley,” “Double,
Double, Toil and Trouble,” and “It Takes Two.” Ultimately, as the girls
grew into teenagers, they appeared in movies and series as their older
selves. These television and movie pieces included “Billboard Dad,” “New
York Minute,” and “So Little Time.”

The Olsens transition from “Full House” to The Row

After their acting careers subsided, the two gained control of their
company, Dualstar Entertainment Group. The company first started out
selling home decor items and fragrances which was sold in more than 5,300
stores worldwide. Upon furthering their passion in fashion design, the
Olsens created The Row under Dualstar. Furthermore from their design line,
the two also became notable fashion icons for their red carpet and street
bohemian, chic style. The two were named controversial for their fashion
choices and have been placed on best and worst-dressed lists.

In 2004, Mary-Kate and Ashley retired their silver screen days and moved
cross-country from California to New York. The two enrolled in New York
University, thus igniting their fashion flame. The Olsens embarked on their
first fashion venture: creating the perfect T-shirt. Ashley tested the
famous tee on all shapes and sizes of different ages to find a perfect fit
and style. From this creation, their now critically-acclaimed fashion line
The Row was born. The idea of taking commonalities in fashion such as
basics (t-shirts, denim, etc.) and elevating them to a new level of finery
and luxury resulted in the birth of The Row. Established officially in
2006, the couture line has become well-coveted among fashionistas

The Row reaches high-end status through Olsens designs

The Row includes various pieces for its shoppers. From chic pantsuits,
leather leggings, slip dresses, corduroy jackets, and python bags; The Row
covers every elevated basic imaginable. The idea was to create high-quality
items that are comfortable and wearable. The classic line offers
upper-echelon-designer prices, bringing the overall vision of the brand to
an eloquent status. As prices average on the higher end, pieces range from
approximately 174 to 10,380 dollars.

The Olsens twins honored at CFDA as Womenswear Designers of the

Based in New York, The Row is predominantly manufactured in the U.S.
(although a select few handbags and knitwear are made in Italy). At the
moment, the brand’s sole store is located in Los Angeles. However, the
brand is distributed at Saks Fifth Avenue, Barney’s, Net-A-Porter and other
high-end retailers. The Row currently operates with 51-200 employees.

Although their most eminent fashion line is The Row, the two have also
created other retail collections entitled “Elizabeth and James,”
“Olsenboye,” and “StyleMint.” The two have also teamed up with iconic
footwear brand Toms as guest designers. In 2012, the two gained recognition
from the Council of Fashion Designers of America (CFDA) Fashion Awards.
Also that year, the two sisters were honored as Innovator of the Year by
Wall Street Journal magazine. In 2007, Forbes ranked the two sisters
collectively as the eleventh-richest women in entertainment with a
estimated networth of 100 million dollars. As for now, the twins are still
in good hands in the world of fashion. This year the dynamic pair were
honored once again. Continuing in excellence with their work on The Row,
Mary-Kate and Ashley won Womenswear Designer of the Year at the CFDA
