Marc Jacobs (born April 9, 1963 in New York City ….yes New York’s Own)  is an American fashion designer. He is the head designer for Marc Jacobs, as well as the diffusion line Marc by Marc Jacobs. Jacobs is currently the Creative Director of the prestigious French design house Louis Vuitton. In 1997, Jacobs was appointed Creative Director of luxury French fashion house, Louis Vuitton, where he created the company’s first ready-to-wear line. Jacobs is famous for collaborating with many popular artists for his Louis Vuitton collections. Vuitton has worked in conjunction with Stephen Sprouse, Takashi Murakami and most recently American artist Richard Prince and Kanye West. As of 2009, Jacobs remains the Creative Director for Louis Vuitton. In recent years, the Marc Jacobs brand has increased the number of boutiques and direct point of service locations. This is evident in the signature list of cities featured in the company’s print advertisements (although such adverts do not provide an entirely accurate or exhaustive survey of the brand’s retail operations). Some of these branded showrooms present only a certain portion of the company’s several brands (The Marc Jacobs Collection, Marc by Marc Jacobs, and Little Marc, a children’s line) . A number of branded boutiques, for instance, feature only the Marc by Marc Jacobs product line. As of May 2008, Marc Jacobs boutiques in the United States include multiple locations in New York, San Francisco, and Los Angeles, as well as shops in Bal Harbour, Las Vegas, Guam, Chicago, Savannah, Boston, and Provincetown, Massachusetts. Worldwide, other such stand-alone stores are found in Europe (Paris, London, Madrid, Copenhagen and Moscow), the Middle East (Beirut, Riyadh, Dubai and Kuwait), across Japan (multiple locations in Tokyo and Osaka, as well as Kyoto, Kobe, Nagoya, Sendai, Shizuoka, Nagano, Chiba, Matsuyama, and Tottori), Korea (multiple locations in Seoul) and elsewhere in Asia (multiple locations in Hong Kong and Taipei, as well as Shanghai, Beijing, Chengdu, Guangzhou, Manila, Kuala Lumpur, Singapore, Jakarta, and Bangkok). The various ready-to-wear and accessory collections are also widely available at leading department stores around the globe. THIS MAN IS A GENIUS….ONE OF MY TOP 5 DEAD OR ALIVE FAVORITE ARTIST.
