Olsens to Bring Elizabeth and James In-house

IN THE OLSEN HOUSE: Ashley and Mary-Kate Olsen have made the call to bring their Elizabeth and James label in-house for the first time since its 2007 launch. The licensee, Los Angeles-based Jaya Apparel Group, has produced the contemporary collection from the start. Founded in 1982, the 140-person West Coast conglomerate also manufactures the Olsenboye label, various Disney licenses, proprietary ones and various private labels.
The two-time Council of Fashion Designers of America women’s wear winners’ new setup with Elizabeth and James will be evident with the pre-fall/fall 2016 apparel collection.
The decision was purely contractual, as in one that has wound down, according to a spokeswoman for the designers and Jaya Apparel’s chief executive officer Jane Siskin. “It’s been an amazing eight years and we’ve enjoyed working with them immensely. We look forward to a great future for both parties,” Siskin said.
Known to be entrenched in The Row, Elizabeth and James and their other fashion ventures, the Olsens stand to become even more involved with the day-to-day operations of their secondary label.

The plaintiff Shahista Lalani reportedly claimed to have punched the clock with 50-hour unpaid work weeks.A Dualstar spokeswoman, Annett Wolf, challenged the allegations altogether. Wolf said Tuesday, “As an initial matter, Dualstar is an organization that is committed to treating all individuals fairly and in accordance with all applicable laws. The allegations in the complaint filed against Dualstar are groundless, and Dualstar will vigorously defend itself against plaintiff’s claims in court, not before the media. Dualstar is confident that once the true facts of this case are revealed, the lawsuit will be dismissed in its entirety.”
Lalani declined to comment Tuesday, deferring a request to her attorney Brett Cohen at Leeds Brown Law. Cohen did not immediately respond to a request for comment. Lalani, a graduate of The New School’s Parsons School of Design, now has her own signature ready-to-wear label. The Row, the twins’ luxury apparel and accessories collection,
