When the designers Ashley and Mary-Kate Olsen found that their New York show for The Row label could not go on because of late delivery of Italian fabrics, they came up with a cool solution: a strategic partnership with Bing.com that would enable them to show their clothes to selected press and buyers in Paris — and via Internet to the wider world.
Their virtual show, including a passage in which the designers explained their work, is a way to project the details that are so often lost on the runway.
“Everything is very much done by hand,” said Ashley Olsen, showing the delicate, covered buttons, the narrow vents and the subtle, low-slung top to a slim skirt. Although online viewers will miss the textures of satin-backed crepe and silk georgette, the close-up format gets across the message of delicacy and intimacy that is the design duo’s aim.

Apparently everyone who left Nobu last night didn’t want to be noticed by the paparazzi. Why dine at one of the biggest celebrity “it” spots in the city if you want to slink off into the dark? INF Daily snapped pint sized actress/ designer Ashley Olsen and her longtime boyfriend, actor Justin Bartha, leaving the famed Japanese restaurant – and they were none to pleased by all the attention.
After all her years in the business, Ashley’s a pro at hiding her tiny body behind her infamously large bags. ButJustin’s still new enough that he must have forgotten his purse at home. Dude had nothing to hide behind. How embarrassing.
Word is, Justin’s very close to proposing to Ashley, and is just waiting to find the right ring. It’s hard to match platinum to fur. The pair have been dating since 2008.

And although it seemed like an eternity, it was worth It and, fortunately for you, it was captured on video. The brand released a behind-the-scenes video Monday, giving fans the ability to watch the show virtually, as well as see interview footage with the Olsens and get a peek inside the atelier. Watch the short film at Bing.com/therow. Also in fashion shorts, Love magazine and Versace released their new film, “Modelgeddon,” starringAlessandra Ambrosio, Ana Beatriz Barros, Claudia Mason and Julie Ordon, with creative direction by editor in chief Katie Grand.

Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen keep close as they leave the Alexander McQueen boutique in New York City’s Meatpacking District on Friday (September 24).
The 24-year-old fashionistas recently sold their five-bedroom, 4.5-bath penthouse in the city’s West Village, HousingWatch reports.
Back in 2005, M-K and Ashley bought the penthouse for $7.3 million when they moved to NYC to go to college.
The property was sold for $7.7 million to real estate mogul Ian Bruce Eichner.
