Marc Jacobs the designer and brand

A native of New York City, Marc Jacobs was born on April 9, 1963, and attended and graduated from Teaneck High School, while also graduating from the New York High School of Art and Design.

He continued his education at New York City's Parsons where he won the Perry Ellis Gold Thimble Award in 1984 — the same year he was awarded the Chester Weinberg Gold Thimble Award and the Design Student of the Year AwarHe designed and sold his first line of hand-knit sweaters while still at Parsons; he also designed his first collection for Reuben Thomas, Inc., while a student. It was in 1986 that Jacobs designed his first collection and namesake label. Following his studies, Jacobs began to design at Perry Ellis, in 1988, for whom he designed an infamous "grunge" collection, which lead to his dismissal in 1993. Ironically, in 1987, Jacobs had been awarded The Council of Fashion Designers of America Perry Ellis Award for New Fashion Talent.

The youngest designer to have received this honor, Jacobs and his business partner, Robert Duffy, launched the Marc Jacobs signature line of womenswear in 194. In 1997, Jacobs was appointed Creative Director of Louis Vuitton, which he remains today, despite having dared to play with the Louis Vuitton monogram! Here, he created the company's first ready-to-wear line. Also in 1997, Marc Jacobs took home yet another CFDA Womenswear Designer of the Year Award, which sparked his launch of the lower-priced diffusion line, Marc by Marc Jacobs in 1998. Since then, the awards keep coming and the brand keeps growing.
The Marc Jacobs brand now incldues clothing (womenswear, menswear and children's), bags, shoes, eyewear, watches, home accessories and fragrances.
