Marc Jacobs: A story that started in New York and well before its first pair of sunglasses.
Born on April 9, 1963 in New York, Marc Jacobs was raised by his grandmother and she introduced him to knitting, sewing and the art of style and fashion from an early age.
He then continued this during his high school years and then in a school of fashion design instead of a traditional American university.
It is also during the end of year contest of this same school that he presented his collection of sweaters and is spotted by a businessman that was present in the room: Robert Duffy. They will then eventually become business partners but also one of his best friends still today. The two men will eventually try to make a name for themselves in the complicated world of fashion (more so in New York)
In the early 2000s he was recruited by Louis Vuitton and made a name for himself by giving the job of changing a company that was dated and was selling products that were out of fashion. From his Parisian residence he organized Louis Vuitton's counter-attack and allowed the brand to return to the top in a few years.
On October 1, 2013 he announced that he left the artistic direction of L.V and ended with a parade showing his entire career at L. Vuitton, and this parade is still remembered today.
