Ashley Olsen’s New Fashion Job: Board Member of the CFDA

There’s been a bit of a shake-up over at the CFDA (Council of Fashion Designers of America), and former Full House cast member Michelle Tanner – err, Ashley Olsen – now officially has a seat on the board. Her leadership at The Row and Elizabeth and James clearly shows that she’s serious about fashion, but with this new appointment, she’s earned validation that the rest of the fashion world is serious about her, too. (That CFDA Womenswear Designer of the Year award she and her sister Mary-Kate took home last year doesn’t hurt, either.)

Mary-Kate is Ashley’s parter in crime – and by crime, I mean fashion design – but as far as CFDA love, there’s been no mention of her. Clearly the fashion world has spoken when it comes to choosing its favorite twin.
