Call it a reunion.

The CFDA Awards are a chance to catch up with old friends, according to Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen, who are nominated for Womenswear Designer of the Year for their brand The Row.

“We’re each other’s dates,” said Ashley Olsen of tonight’s soirée. “More than anything, we’re happy to be around everyone. [We] see each other often, but it’s nice to have this event to say hello and congratulate everyone on their year.”

Outside of The Row, the Olsens have a few other tricks up their sleeve. The pair act as creative directors for Superga North America, with its footwear licensee Steve Madden.

“They have a following with everything they do,” said Madden while fêting the Superga store opening in Soho last week. “You never know what you’re going to get with Ashley and Mary-Kate.”
