They’ve been out of the lens for a while now, concentrating on their plans as designers and mega-brand workers, and it seems like this has more than paid back for our favourite Nickelodeon twinset, Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen. The good pair have been nominated for not one, except two CFDA awards! Yup, fashion’s brightest gathered at the Top of The Are insane (that’s literally the top of the Rockefeller centre) in New York to celebrate typically award nominees for this year’s ceremony, which will take place on 1st June. And, amongst the likes of Altuzarra, Marc Jacobs cases and Michael Kors, the Olsen twins were nominated for both Womenswear Designer of The Year and Accessories Designer of The Year, due to their work at The Row, the label they established together.
The only other brand to receive two nominations was Proenza Schouler, causeing this to be quite the coup for the designer sisters. Their fellow nominees for the Accessories award included Alexander Wang, Tabitha Simmons and Proenza’s Jack McCollough & Lazaro Hernandez, while Michael Kors, Marc Jacobs iPhone 6 case and Joseph Altuzarra all received nominations for Womenswear Designer of The Year.
Diane Von Furstenberg announced the list of nominees, while Mary-Kate and Ashley posed for group pics with their fellow designers. Mary-Kate chose an oversized coat and scarf, and Ashley rocked black tailoring for the event. Naturally, the pair both carried black handbags of their own design. Good work girls, we can’t wait to see who scoops the prizes come June. Haven’t they come a long way since Full House…?
