A Rare Peek Inside Mary-Kate and Ashley's Design Studio

Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen are known for being private about their personal lives, but yesterday that all changed. The social media–shy designer duo took over Sephora's Instagram in honor of the best-selling Elizabeth and James Nirvana fragrance. The fashion-forward sisters started off their photo-sharing day with their first-ever public selfie and continued to give us a peek into their world, from what they eat for lunch to how they celebrate a long day's work.

Our favorite part, however, was getting to check out the Elizabeth and James design studio, which is where all the fashion magic happens. Followers were treated to snaps of the sisters' inspiration board, fabric samples for bags, and even a patternmaker's station. We're hoping to see more active Instagram accounts from the designers, but in the meantime, check out the behind-the-scenes pictures from the Elizabeth and James design space and shop the brand below.
