The Olsen Twins Reveal Their Startling Work Ethic and Why Their Fashion Careers Are So Productive

The Olsen twins revealed in a recent interview about their fashion brand, how they’ve managed to cross over from childhood acting to fashion and achieve outstanding success. They run two fashion labels, The Row and Elizabeth and James. The Row is a luxury brand and Elizabeth and James is contemporary lifestyle.

The sisters have made the transition from the jarring experience of early fame to eventually having a more low key existence in the fashion world. Their lifestyle took a shift after they decided to attend college. They stepped away from much media attention and instead focused on having tremendous levels of career productivity.

Mary-Kate is the married twin. She wedded wealthy French banker Olivier Sarkozy, 47, in 2015. She spoke to The Edit about how she balances family life with business life, and still finds time for necessary relaxation.

“I think we’re lucky [working hard] comes quite naturally for us. We don’t need so much time to sit and think and ponder. But then I have a husband, two step-kids, and a life; I have to go home and cook dinner. I ride horses on the weekends. You find the thing that helps you relax and if you don’t have it, you have to look for it. Or you get burned out and then you’re not productive.”

Sister Ashley is dating 64-year-old art dealer Richard Sachs.

The Olsen twins take great care in the clothing they produce, asking their staff to try outfits on and make sure they’re functional and wearable, not just pretty. They do the same quality tests themselves.

Besides a very functional sense of quality and style, the twins attribute their success to staying sheltered, meaning, staying off social media. Though their brands keep social media, the twins themselves keep away from any potential productivity-draining platforms like Facebook or Instagram. Where other celebrities are constantly trying to build a buzz through social media, the Olsen girls just want to stay focused on the concrete work in front of them.

As productive, meticulous, and hardworking as the Olsen twins are, they faced a backlash from an intern claiming unfair working conditions over at The Row. As The Fashion Law reports, the Olsens’ ended up paying a total $140,000 to 185 interns recently.

Despite the claims, the dispute could be a result of not everybody having the same work ethic that Mary-Kate and Ashley are accustomed to. As the Olsen twins continue to forge ahead in their fashion careers and life, and all without the distraction of social media, they create milestones that the fashion and business worlds are forced to notice.
