The Row moves to Paris Fashion Week

Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen will display The Row at Paris Fashion Week.

The 29-year-old designers have removed their label from New York's upcoming fashion week and will instead put on a show in the French capital, according to WWD.

This switch has only happened once before, for their spring 2011 season, when they switched from New York to Paris because of sample delays.

The former actresses started The Row in 2006 and have gone on to become respected designers.

In June they were awarded the coveted Womenswear Designers of the Year at the 2015 CFDA Fashion Awards in New York City.

The Row label beat off stiff competition from designers including Marc Jacobs, Michael Kors and Joseph Altuzarra for Altuzarra to take home the prize at the prestigious Council of Fashion Designers of America awards ceremony held at the Lincoln Center's Alice Tully Hall and hosted by 'The Late, Late Show' star James Corden.

Meanwhile, the twins recently announced to bring their Elizabeth and James label in-house for the first time since it was launched in 2007.

Their first collection following the change will be the pre-fall/fall 2016 apparel.
