The Row label was founded by Ashley and Mary-Kate Olsen in 2006. First based out of Los Angeles, the brand grew fast finding its home in New York City. Named in reverence of London’s Savile Row, the fashion house emulates the bespoke institution’s standards of exquisite fabrics, impeccable details and perfect fits. Since its creation, The Row translates these values to its ready-to-wear, handbags, footwear, and eyewear collections. Focusing on exceptional textures and precise tailoring, the house combines a timeless perspective with subtle attitudes, forming an irreverent classic signature. The Row’s collections explore strength of simplistic shapes that speak to discretion. Based on the idea of designing understated basics to build a unique wardrobe, the house creates elevated essentials that meet uncompromising luxury. In 2009, the Council of Fashion Designers added Ashley Olsen and Mary-Kate Olsen to their distinguished member roster. Following shortly after in 2012, the CFDA awarded The Row’s designers and founders the Womenswear Designer of the Year, a mere six years after the line’s genesis. In 2014, The Row was presented with the CFDA Accessory Designer of the Year award. The following year, The Row was honored with a second Womenswear Designer of the Year award in 2015.
