Ashley and her twin sister Mary-Kate are successful fashion designers
Both Mary-Kate and Ashley have taken the fashion world by storm in recent years with their own label, The Row, along with a contemporary collection, Elizabeth and James, which they named after their two younger siblings.
Earlier in the year, Mary-Kate spoke to The Edit and revealed that both she and Ashley strive to help women feel good when it comes to designing their clothes. "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. And what a beauty that really is!" she said.
