As the fashion – wunderkind emeritus Marc Jacobs doubles down on his own label post Louis Vuitton let’s review his resume.
1984 Graduates from Parsons School of design as designer of the year
1986 Shows his first Marc Jacobs collection. Marc’s opt art love started early.
1988 Jacobs is hired by Perry Ellis. Jacobs had sent his first collection to Kurt Cobain and Courtney love. They burned it.
1993 Jacobs an business partner Robert Duffy are fired from Perry Ellis. Following the famous Grunge collection.
1994 Returns to his own label with Duffy and in his first collection Linda Evangelista walks for free.
1997 Is named creative director of Louis Vuitton in the fever of the late 90’s it bag madness none got shoppers as hot as the Stephen Sprouse speedy. This was relaunched by Jacobs in limited addition again in 2009. They had a launch party at the fifth avenue Louis Vuitton store- to which I was invited to and was able to snag a Sprouse carry all bag.
2000 Debuts the younger cooler, cheaper Marc by Marc Jacobs
2001 Launches first fragrance
2010 A buff and heavily tattooed Marc Jacobs models in his own fragrance advertisements
2013 His last show for Louis Vuitton and acting debut ( the forgettable disconnect): launches Marc Jacobs beauty.

So what is next on the horizon for this wunderkind? Rumors are flying that his and Duffy’s company( partly owned by LVMH) will go public
This is a trench coat from a Marc Jacobs runway show in which the first look was shown last and the last look shown first. This was done to place emphasis on the clothes that were deconstructed. Very much like this trench with out sleeves worn as a dress and the Marc Jacobs heel- less shoes.
