Marc Jacobs Designer Profile

The Evolution of Marc Jacobs

Marc Jacobs has been creating breathtaking designs for many decades. His unbelievable ability to create street-sleek designs and cutting edge styles has contributed to his success over the years. The most recognizable accomplishment in his career was when he began working as the creative director for Louis Vuitton in 1997. Marc Jacobs designed Louis Vuitton’s first ready-to-wear line and the response from the public was astounding. Since the addition of Marc Jacobs in 1997, the Louis Vuitton label has experienced insurmountable levels of success.

Currently, Marc Jacobs remains the creative director of Louis Vuitton’s ready-to-wear line while designing an assortment of creative styles and designs for his own collection. He has successfully developed complete lines of men’s and women’s clothing as well as shoes, handbags, accessories, jewelry and sunglasses. Marc remains one of the most recognizable designers in the fashion industry.

Marc Jacob’s Signature Style

Although Marc Jacobs is the creative director for both Louis Vuitton and his own line, he has been very successful in creating completely different images within the two labels. As a designer, it is difficult to develop two completely different lines but Marc Jacobs seems to have been successful in doing so. Louis Vuitton and Marc Jacobs offer similar products, displaying completely different images.

Louis Vuitton is a more sophisticated, higher-end label whereas Marc Jacobs is a more casual (still high-end) designer label with a street-savvy approach to fashion. Marc Jacobs has a number of popular lines including Marc by Marc Jacobs, Stinky Rat and Little Marc (children’s line). Each line has seen significant amounts of praise from audiences and fashion critics. Marc Jacobs remains one of the most popular fashion icons of both the 20th and 21st centuries.
