Mary-Kate Olsen

Mary-Kate Olsen has hinted she might make her own wedding dress.

The 27-year-old fashion designer - who previously worked on a bridal gown for a friend with her sister and design partner Ashley - hasn't thought about what to wear for her own big day since getting engaged to Oliver Sarkozy in March, but has toyed with the idea of creating a dress herself.

She told WWD: "I'm not even there yet. I think it may be a matter of getting five or six, or making two or three and being stressed out. That seems kind of far away. We'll take one step at a time."

The Olsen sisters are preparing to open the first standalone shop for their The Row label in their hometown, Los Angeles, after deciding against their adopted city of New York.

Mary-Kate said: "We've always wanted our own store - it's always been part of the plan.

"It was a toss-up between New York and Los Angeles, and when this space became available, we jumped on it. It used to be a hair salon and my sister and I used to come here, so we were very aware of the space."

Ashley chimed in: "We are from here, and The Row started here, so it was all very appropriate."

The store is tucked away in Melrose Place and unusually boasts a swimming pool in the courtyard, as well as offices where the sisters will work.

Mary Kate added: "We have all 170 pieces in our collection represented here. A lot of stores obviously don't buy the whole collection, maybe 20 percent, so this is really the place where we can present it like a showroom."
