The former actresses discuss the origins of their design careers in Net-a-Porter's The Edit magazine.

The Olsen twins can trace their interest in fashion back to their days starring as Michelle Tanner on Full House.

The actresses-turned-designers revealed that their time on the hit ABC sitcom, and the hours of fittings that went along with it, sparked their clothing curiosity.

“[On Full House] we'd be in six-hour fittings three times a week, because we had to wear 12 different outfits,” Ashley Olsen told Net-a-Porter's magazine The Edit. “We were designing clothes for ourselves as we were so petite,” Mary-Kate Olsen added. “So I think that is when we became obsessed with fit, and now the obsession has become a profession.”

The magazine also reveals that the majority of Michelle Tanner's wardrobe consisted of adult pieces, including clothes by Chanel and Marc Jacobs, that were tailored to fit a child.

The Olsen twins currently run the luxury fashion label The Row.
