Marc Jacobs was born in New York City. After graduating from the High School of Art and Design in 1981 he entered Parsonʼs School of Design. As a design student at Parsonʼs, Marc was the recipient of some of the schoolʼs highest honors including Design Student of the Year.

In 1984 he designed his first collection with the Marc Jacobs label. The following year, he received the distinct honor of being the youngest designer ever to be awarded the fashion industryʼs highest tribute: the Council of Fashion Designers of America (CFDA) Perry Ellis Award for New Fashion Talent.

With stores across the globe, Marc Jacobs International now includes ready-to-wear and accessories, a childrenʼs line called Little Marc Jacobs, multiple award-winning fragrances, the bookstore Bookmarc and Marc Jacobs Beauty.
