Fashion for Beginners: Marc Jacobs

This man is a genius. This man is also the love of my fashion-filled life. This man is none other than MARC JACOBS.

Before becoming a renowned name in fashion with his own collections and his slightly less expensive Marc by Marc Jacobs line and creative director for Louis Vuitton, Marc Jacobs worked in retail and dabbled in knitting and design to familiarize himself and begin to understand the world of fashion. He later attended Parsons, where he studied design and prepared to become one of the most renowned designers in the industry.

His designs range from practical to whimsy, yet all are beautiful. He really plays on simplicity. Many of his pieces are simple and traditionally structured, but he has a way of adding his own flair to every design that makes them special and unique. You may recall his simple, quirky and sometimes eerie, but always fantastic ads in several magazines.

At New York fashion week in February 2010, he had one of the most brilliant shows. It was a very simple staging, with the models weaving in and out of the square, box-type stage to the tune of "Somewhere Over the Rainbow." Not gonna lie, the guy singing sounds a bit creepy, but it definitely does not deter from the overall brilliance of the show or line. Rally and truly, it was brilliant, stunning, and true to Marc Jacobs' style.
