Dang, gurl! CONGRATS!!!

Since she and her twin sis have retired their acting careers, Ashley Olsen has been nonstop busy!

And it seems her schedule is going to get a bit more jam packed now that she’s been invited to join the Council of Fashion Designers of America board.

At only 27-years-old, that’s got to be quite the honor!

After all, the twin duo were only just inducted as CFDA members four years ago.

But it makes sense that one of them would get on the board sooner or later, as she and her sister have two reputable fashion lines, The Row and Elizabeth & James, as well as what feels like a million other ventures!

Once again — congrats, Ash!!

Now if only we knew why Mary-Kate was left out. How rude! LOLz!

This is GREAT news!!!

On Monday, New York Sen. Charles Schumer, reintroduced a bill that would provide more copyright protection for designers' creations.

The Innovative Design Protection and Piracy Prevention Act was originally presented to Congress last year by Rep. Bob Goodlatte, but very little progress has been made after its two biggest proponents, the American Apparel & Footwear Association and the CFDA, had to come up with a different approach.

However, now that Schumer got the ball running this week, hope has returned to the industry!

Currently copyright protection doesn't apply
