NEW YORK, June 2 (UPI) -- Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen won big at the 2015 CFDA Fashion Awards on Monday.

The 28-year-old twin sisters beat out longtime designers Marc Jacobs and Michael Kors to win Womenswear Designer of the Year for their luxury label, The Row.

"We have really enjoyed our time, the past 10 years in this industry," Ashley Olsen said as she accepted the prestigious award. "We love our customers."

Other winners included Tom Ford for Menswear Designer of the Year, Betsey Johnson for the Geoffrey Beene Lifetime Achievement Award and Pharrell Williams for the Fashion Icon Award.

Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen established The Row in 2006, and launched vintage-inspired label Elizabeth and James in 2007. The sisters also head J.C. Penney brand Olsenboye and t-shirt line Stylemint.

The Council of Fashion Designers of America previously honored the Olsen twins with Womenswear Designer of the Year in 2012. The pair are well known for portraying Michelle Tanner on ABC sitcom Full House, but will not return for Netflix reboot Fuller House.
