Marc Jacobs is a native New Yorker who is loved and respected in equal measure by everyone in the fashion industry, thanks to his exceptional ability to create clothing and shoes that scream style and sophistication. Marc Jacobs launched his namesake line in 1986 and in 2001 debuted the critically acclaimed Marc by Marc Jacobs collection of comparatively affordable edgy pieces. His creations- round-toed boots, pointed flats, metallic evening shoes and other innovative designs are on in-store waiting lists every season.
His use of "bright colors, oversize prints, layered looks, empire lines, rugby stripes, oversize bows and buttons" combined with signature elegance make his collection enormously famous.
Throughout his career Jacobs has never been afraid to push the envelope: "I love that reaction of love or hate. It's indifference that bores me to death." America's darling of fashion received highest honors from Parsons School of Design. Luxury French house Louis Vuitton, taken with Jacob's strong self assurance, hired him to design their first ready-to-wear line in 1997.
Some famous names that wear his collection includes Winona Ryder, Uma Thurman, the Olsen twins, Drew Barrymore, Sophia Coppola, Scarlett Johansson, and Maggie Gyllenhall.
