   Marc Jacobs started his rise to the top of fashion design industry as early as his teenage years. His first work with fashion was during his boyhood years in which he worked as a stock boy at a clothing boutique. He graduated from the High School of Art and Design in 1981 in New York City. He then went on to study at the Parsons School of Design, where he won a multitude of awards, including the Design Student of the Year award in 1984. While he was still at Parsons, he designed and sold a line of hand-knit sweaters. Executive Robert Duffy had him design his first collection under the “Sketchbook” label for Ruben Thomas, Inc. This launched their strong business partnership and together, they established Jacobs Duffy Designs, Inc. His line of sweaters were produced in Japan and sold. These sweaters are captured in photograph for the New York Times. Because of the strong reader audience that the New York Times attracts, this kind of exposure to the masses is the point at which his career began. 

   In 1986, the two would establish Marc Jacobs, Inc. During the same year, Jacobs would show his first collection under the Marc Jacobs label. This work would label him as one of the “seven rising stars in fashion” in Vogue magazine. He also became the youngest ever designer to earn the Council of Fashion Designers of America’s Perry Ellis Award for New Fashion Talent in 1988. 

   Soon, Jacobs and Duffy became the vice-president and president of women’s design in the Perry Ellis unit. Jacobs’ work in that unit is featured both in Vogue and on its cover. In 1992, he showed a preview for Spring 1993, which included a grunge collection that led to his dismissal from Perry Ellis. This did not deter him, as he and Duffy would form Marc Jacobs International Company, L.P.

   1994 was when he launched his first menswear collection. 1997 proved to be one of the most important years of his career when he was appointed as the artistic director of Louis Vuitton. In this position, he assumed responsibility for creating leather goods and the first ready-to-wear line for men and women. LVMH, which controls Louis Vuitton, invested in Jacobs’ label, providing him with enough capital to expand his own business. His first collection while working for Louis Vuitton was launched the following year. Throughout this whole time, he has continued to win awards from the Council of Fashion Designers of America and have his work featured in Vogue, legitimizing his work as exemplary. 

   In 2001, the diffusion line Marc by Marc Jacobs is launched with clothing for both men and women. His work continues to get him recognition, which results in a plaque with his name on it at the Fashion Walk of Fame in New York City’s Garment District. He launched a perfume line and gets honored for that with his induction into the Fragrance Foundation Hall of Fame. Over the years, Jacobs also earned a position on the CFDA’s board of directors after having won many of their awards throughout the years. 

   In 2013, while at Vuitton, he has staged yet another successful show and has left the brand to focus on developing his label over the next couple of years.
