Designers Refused to Dress Mary-Kate and Ashley When They Were Tweens
It turns out when Mary-Kate and Ashley were tweens they had something in common with Melania Trump, otherwise known as their biggest fan.
All the top designers refused to give them clothes.
Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsenâ€™s ex-stylist Judy Swartz told Refinery29 that â€œa lot of the designers I would reach out to really werenâ€™t interested in giving clothes to the girls.â€
â€œI would try; Iâ€™d call up a [fashion] company and try to get accessories; I’d go, ‘Mary-Kate and Ashley are doingâ€¦’ But, hey, they were young. Itâ€™s ironic to me that those are the [industry names] theyâ€™re hanging out with now. People were coming around and lending them clothes when I stopped working with them, when they were 16 or 17 years old. But when they were tweens, no [designers] were interested [in lending]; I donâ€™t blame them. But I went and bought [those designers’ clothes] anyway.”
In 2017, it’s unfathomableÂ thatÂ designers would EVER refuse to dress some of the hottest stars of the day just because they happened to be tweens.
Just look at Millie Bobby Brown.
Sheâ€™s 13, has only been on one successful TV show, and the fashion industry is already embracing her so hard sheâ€™s one of the frickin facesÂ of Calvin Klein.
Now just imagine how much the fashion worldÂ would be foaming at the mouthÂ to get their designs on tweensÂ of MK&A’s caliber.
Guess the world just wasn’t ready for Mary-Kate and Ashley.
