New York, NY (CNS) – Ashley and her sister Mary-Kate are launching a menswear line for their high-end label The Row this fall. Ashley revealed the details of the new venture in an interview with men’s magazine VMan.
The 22-year-old Olsen covered her blonde hair with a dark brown wig for the shoot to promote her fall 2009 menswear line. She also shows off her petite figure in a shot of her wearing a bra and men’s slacks.
“To touch a man who has a soft sweater on, a soft pant, a great jacket… or something that as a woman, I want to take off him and put on and feel sexy in. (sic),” the “Full House” star reveals.
The “New York Minute” actress – who is dating actor Justin Bartha, said she wants to pursue her newfound career in fashion designing while her sister has other ideas.
In 2004, both Ashley and Mary-Kate became CEO of their company Dualstar (created in 1993 following the success on Full House), the brand is currently selling in over 3,000 stores in America and 5,300 stores world-wide.
The twins continue to expand in the fashion industry with the Fall ’07 launch of Elizabeth & James, their contemporary collection inspired by many of their unique vintage finds and pieces in their personal wardrobes.
Their success has been marked on Forbes The Celebrity 100 list since 2002, and in 2007 Forbes ranked the twins as the eleventh-richest women in entertainment, with an estimated net worth of $100 million.
