And guess who took home the award for Fashion Innovator of the Year? The brainchild of our favorite myestery-solving, fun-loving, fashion-designing Olsen twins, THE ROW.
Established in 2006 by Mary-Kate and Ashley, THE ROW has produced bags for Barney’s, sunglasses with Linda Farrow, TOMS with, well, TOMS, and so much more. WSJ praises the designers for “display[ing] an eye for nearly monastic classicism that’s redefining American luxury” and we agree wholeheartedly. Earlier this year, The Council of Fashion Designers of America named Ashley and Mary-Kate as Womenswear Designers of The Year. All in all, we’d say the twins are on a roll.
Congratulations are also in order for the five other Innovators of the Year – Wang Shu for Architecture, Patrick Kinmonth for Design, Eric Eisner for Education, Theaster Gates for Art, and Jack Dorsey for Technology.
