Spécialités

Marc Jacobs was born in New York City on April 9, 1963. After graduating from the High School of Art and Design in 1981 he entered Parson’s School of Design. As a design student at Parson’s, Jacobs was the recipient of some of the schools highest honors including Design Student of the Year. In 1984 he met Robert Duffy who is still his business partner today.

1989 Jacobs and Duffy joined Perry Ellis as Vice-​President of Women’s Design and President respectively. In 1992, the CFDA once again bestowed Jacobs with a distinct honor: the Women’s Designer of the Year Award for his fabled Grunge Collection. Ironically, months before the CFDA awards were announced, they were fired for that very same collection.

In the fall of 1993, Jacobs Duffy Designs Inc. launched their own licensing and design company: Marc Jacobs International Company, L.P.

Jacobs and Duffy joined Louis Vuitton in 1997, Jacobs as Artistic Director and Duffy as Studio Director. They also opened the first Marc Jacobs free standing store on Mercer Street in New York’s Soho district. Today there are over 250 stores combined worldwide.

Jacobs and Duffy continue to run the company and are committed to giving back to the communities where they have stores and beyond. They have been involved with over 150 charities worldwide and the ongoing support of many of these charitable projects – as well as new collaborations – continues to be a top priority.
