Born in 1963, 54 year-old Marc Jacobs studied at the Parsons School of Design. By 1997, he was creative director of Louis Vuitton, a tenure he held until 2014. Under his leadership, the French goods house produced its first ever ready-to-wear collection. Within a decade, he has quadrupled profits for the house.

His own eponymous label was launched in 1986 after his graduation collection was received to critical acclaim. The following year he had received the Perry Ellis Award for New Fashion Talent – the youngest designer ever to do so.

Marc Jacobs helped launch a then-unknown Tom Ford’s career, and instigated the grunge trend with his 1993 summer collection of plaid and boots. Friends and models Naomi Campbell and Kate Moss often walked in his shows, bringing the label even further into the limelight.

2011 saw the designer receive the CFDA’s Lifetime Achievement award, having previously awarding him Womenswear Designer of the Year three times, Accessory Designer of the Year four times, and Menswear of the Year once.
