Ashley and Mary-Kate keep a discreet veil over their lives and rarely make public appearances on the red carpet, preferring rather to express themselves through their creations and their products.
“This is the way we have chosen to move forward in our lives: not being in the spotlight, really having something that speaks for itself,” Mary-Kate told Vogue Australia last month.
“We are putting a lot of pressure on ourselves,” she added. “If you want things to be perfect or beautiful, it’s a lot of hard work … Nothing is easy. It’s just how we were raised; that’s what we think is necessary to do something different. “
