Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen have come a long way from their days crawling around the set of Full House. In fact, the twin sisters have shocked the world by becoming fixtures of the New York fashion scene with their high-fashion collection The Row, which recently earned them a CFDA Swarovski Award nomination. Last night the duo paired up with Barney’s New York to celebrate the launch of their newest addition to the collection; an ultra-chic line of handbags that are the perfect accessory to any fashion lovers wardrobe. The preview was followed by a Barney’s-hosted dinner at downtown hotspot Double Crown. CEO Mark Lee, Creative Ambassador Simon Doonan and Women’s Fahsion Director Amanda Brooks were on hand to help the twins celebrate along with their gorgeous younger (and taller) sister Elizabeth Olsen and DJ duo Harley Viera-Newton and Cassie Coane.
