Mary-Kate & Ashley Olsen Learned About Clothes on 'Full House'

Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen grace the cover of Net-A-Porter’s The Edit magazine’s latest issue.

Here’s what the 27-year-old twin fashion designers, who had their makeup done by Hung Vanngo for the shoot, had to share with the mag:

On learning about clothes during their Full House days: “[On Full House] we would be in six-hour fittings three times a week, because we had to wear 12 different outfits,” Ashley said. “We were designing clothes for ourselves as we were so petite,” Mary-Kate adds. “So I think that is when we became obsessed with fit, and now the obsession has become a profession,” Mary-Kate added.

Ashley, on photographers in NYC: “There is a threshold in New York, and once you pass that and are considered a New Yorker, they leave you alone. But we’re at the office every day, then home or out for dinner, so there aren’t the opportunities for them to take pictures. For the most part you try and avoid it… [I do], at least.”

Mary-Kate, on future plans: “We’re really focused on The Row at the moment.”

Ashley, on their rise to fame: “We were nine months old when we started, so fame has always been part of our lives. There wasn’t any weirdness where we decided that we wanted to be famous. Then as we got older, we were very fortunate that we could hire and work with amazing people who want to protect us.”

    Wow, the one on the left looks like Elizabeth Olsen on the story pic! And the other one… well, doesn’t completely look like an Olsen twin either. Too much Photoshop?!

  • Smile

    All those Olsen Twin jokes aside, these two are actually really grounded and professional, and they really know their products and market. They could have turned out 1000 other ways (see Drew Barrymore and drugs, Macaulay Culkin, Lindsay Lohan, Amanda Byrnes, and of course, Wacko Jacko).

  • Ashley looks so lovely in these photos, Mary-Kate is very very thin though. But like ‘Smile’ said, they are so grounded and professional considering they were child stars.
