Marc Jacobs is one of fashion’s most important figures. Always a step ahead, Jacobs creates innovative masterpieces for his eponymous line, as well as for Marc by Marc Jacobs, and for the major French fashion house Louis Vuitton where he serves as creative director.

Jacobs, who divides his time between Paris and New York, creates collections representing a range of influences as he mixes eclectic styles, eras, cultures, textures, and prints. The resulting designs are romantic, comfortable, and familiar, yet entirely new and utterly hip. The fashion world has responded by bestowing countless awards on Jacobs, who has risen to become a prominent fixture on the celebrity scene. His powerful fashion sensibility and plain-old cool designs have revolutionized the fashion world, making him one of today’s most influential designers.
