The Olsen twins have been admitted into the Council of Fashion Designers of America by council president Diane Von Furstenberg.
The CFDA is a trade association that addresses concerns of the fashion industry and advances design in the world of arts, in addition to hosting the CFDA awards.
It’s quite an honor as they will be inducted alongside other designers that include Jason Wu, designer of Michelle Obama‘s inaugral dress.
Ashley and Mary-Kate helmed the lines The Row as well as Elizabeth and James, so they aren’t just being inducted for their work at Wal-Mart.
I’d be impressed but DVF is also the person who gave Whitney Port a job. I think DVF might be a bit of a starf***er. “Let’s give Whitney Port a job! And one for Olivia Palermo! And let’s make MKO and Ashley fashion designers! Let’s make Selena Gomez mayor!”
