My Current fashion Crush? ... The spring/summer 2009 Marc By Marc Jacobs collection. Everything in the line is so fun, young, cute, and fresh. By using lots of pattern, pale colours, and preppy looks and concepts, this collection is for sure one of this spring seasons best. Obviously, we all love Marc, and everything he does is genius, but this season he just hit a sweet spot.
Ok... HISTORY, HISTORY!
- Jacobs attended the High School of Art and Design in New York City and graduated in 1981. He lived in Teaneck, New Jersey, with his mother, sister and younger brother, and attended Teaneck High School. At fifteen, Jacobs worked as a stockboy at Charivari, an avant-garde clothing boutique in New York City From there, Jacobs entered the Parsons School of Design in New York City.
- While still at Parsons, Jacobs designed and sold his first line of hand-knit sweaters. He designed his first collection for Reuben Thomas, Inc., under the Sketchbook label. Following his studies at Parsons, Jacobs began to design at Parry Ellis (Ellis had recently died, so he wasn't there). Jacobs became prominent on the fashion scene when he designed a "grunge" collection for Perry Ellis, leading to his dismissal in 1993.
(Thank you Wikipedia!)
Currently, Marc Jacobs is taking the fashion world by storm, and is at the top of the designer most wanted list. Might I add that he is looking smokin' lately?
Our Marc did good!
