New York City born fashion designer who established an upscale couture line under his name, diffused a modern cool collection, and holds the title of creative designer to the prestigious French luxury brand Louis Vuitton, of course we’re talking about no other than Marc Jacobs.
Since his grandmother taught him how to knit early on, his interest in fashion flourished. Jacobs studied at Parsons School of Art and Design in New York and later started designing for Perry Ellis. He was let go after designing a collection of “grunge” for Ellis, but success came to him after being awarded a New Fashion Talent award by The Council of Fashion Designers of America. He carried on to his own line the Marc Jacobs Collection that became an instant hit within the fashion and celebrity world. Kate Moss, Naomi Campbell, Victoria Beckham, Dakota Fanning and Linda Evangelista are just some of the many fans to both his Collection line and his funky cool Marc by Marc Jacobs line.
From 1997 until today, Marc Jacobs holds the title of creative director for Louis Vuitton and has succeeded in huge collaborations with the likes of Takashi Murakami, Stephen Sprouse, and Richard Prince.
