Last September, Mary-Kate Olsen
and Ashley Olsen
cancelled their New York fashion show due to a delay in sample delivery, and then moved the show to Paris. It made sense at the time, but now it's looking like the designing duo may have planned it all along. Fashionologie
reports the Olsen twins aren't even pretending to schedule a New York show; they are simply penciling in a Paris presentation. For American designers, Paris is a gutsy move—Zac Posen
French foray didn't exactly get glowing reviews. But the twins received positive press for their spring collection. Style.com remarked, It's that kind of attention to detail that can make you forget that the Olsens were celebrities before they became designers to be taken seriously."
