Mary-Kate and Ashley Rare Interview for 'The Edit': Social Media, Fashion, and MK's Personal Life

On being photographed being outside of their comfort zone: "We're used to being on the other side of the camera and managing the process, so it’s hard for us to do photoshoots now. That's why you have models.

On Elizabeth and James: “We like to say that Elizabeth and James is the new luxury; it’s the idea that you can still have fashion, great fabrics, and great fits, at a lower price point.”

On work ethic: “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.”

On how they shaped fashion at a young age: “When we were younger, being in the public eye was almost part of our role and responsibility – to set the trends at that time or be ahead of fashion. We would take adult clothing and cut it down to our size, change the proportions. I think from a young age we understood fit in a very different way because we’re so petite.”

On being detail-oriented and trying on every design: “You know, it’s funny; I’m wearing these pants today [on page 11 at the source] and all I keep thinking is: how haven’t they wrinkled yet? That’s a good sign; we’ll use this fabric again. It’s little things like that.”

On loathing fashion and style 'rules': “We just want to help women feel however they want to feel. Every once in a while, we want to change our perfume or our haircut; we want to wear heels or flats. We just like to switch it up. That’s the beauty of clothes.”

On how being dressed on set taught them everything they needed to know about cut, fit, and proportion: “We’ve been in so many fittings. We used to do two a week for 15 years.”

On social media: “We don’t dive into that world [of social media]; we don’t have Instagram or Facebook, so we’ve never been connected to our customers or our fans in that way. We’ve stayed quite sheltered.”

love these fraternal, open-minded, chill, weird queens
