Inspirational People: Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen

1991 - Full House, 2000 - promoting their new line of dolls, 2002 - Vanity Fair party, 2004 - Hollywood Walk of Fame Induction

I've been fans of MKA for as long as I can remember, from watching Two of Kind and all their childhood films, to following their style throughout their later years, I've been here for all of it.  

They've worked their whole lives since they were 9 months old on Full House, and haven't stopped since. They had multiple TV shows together, as well as 12 films together - featuring favourites such as Passport To Paris and Winning London. Their last film together was New York Minute in 2004, the year they were also honoured with a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame.

After moving on from film and TV, they quickly moved into the fashion industry - with Mary-Kate creating her own spin on the boho-chic look, which was named the 'homeless' look. They created a teen fashion line for Walmart - which I also remember being available in an Asda near my nan's house and I think I owned quite a few pieces from it! Since then they've released their own couture fashion label, The Row. They've also produced multiple lines for Elizabeth & James and had a collection for J.C. Penney. During this time they released a book, Influence, which featured interviews with prominent figures in the fashion industry. They became regulars at star studded events such as Cannes Film Festival and the Met Ball, and also sat in the front row of prestigious fashion shows like Chanel at PFW.

Most recently, MKA have released yet another fashion line in Norway and in 2015 they received the award for Womenswear Designer of the Year from the CFDA for The Row.

The reason MKA are so inspiring to me is that they've achieved all of this by the age of 29 - only 9 and a half years older than myself - and they're showing no sign of wanting to slow down. They're so dedicated to everything they do, and they even make time for charities and human rights work.

If I can have even a little bit of their success by the time I'm 29, I'll have done something right.
