This just in: a trusted tipster tells us that The Row, the luxury apparel and accessory label founded by very busy Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen, has selected LA for its first-ever store location. No word on opening date, but we do have a location: 8444 Melrose Place.
The stylist twins founded the NY-based brand in 2006 with a mission to support high-end fashion manufacturing in the US. Known for rolling out super-chic, super-pricey styles that range from minimalist to conceptual, The Row continues to reel in scores of fan and even landed the girls a 2012 CFDA Award for Womenswear Designers of the Year.
Once they settle into their new home, The Row will be a stone's throw away from equally-awesome Melrose Place destinations like Equipment, Isabel Marant and Alfred Coffee & Kitchen. Stay tuned for much more.
