So Paris' gain isn't entirelyNew York's loss. After postponing The Row's Spring 2011 show (originally slated to take place here in New York), and opting for a later presentation in Paris, designer-moguls Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen announced that they'll be airing footage from the show on Bing.com this Sunday. Check out the preview video:
The twins' decision to show footage of their latest collection on the Internet—which they discuss in USA Today—is actually pretty surprising, given how reclusive the duo can be at times—not to mention how exclusive their label can be. The Olsens also revealed to the paper that they would love to introduce handbags to the mix (we'd love that too).
Perhaps the wisened young stars wanted to gain strong footing as a legitimate fashion label before being too overly-exposed via the Internet. In addition to their forthcoming presentation, The Row only recently launched e-commerce, adding their site to the handful of stores, like Bergdorf Goodman and Barneys, that carry the line.
Whatever their motives, we can likely speak for most of the industry when we say we're totally thrilled.
