A chic volume devoted to the career of one of the brightest, most successful and imitated international designers. In a 20-year career, Marc Jacobs has soared from whiz-kid extraordinaire and the toast of New York s Parsons School of Design to one of the brightest, most successful, and most imitated international designers of our time. His is a story of passion, dogged determination, countless obstacles, and a firm belief in style as a major cultural barometer. But most of all, his is a story of fashion s limitless potential to delight.

He finds charm in awkwardness as well as glamour and inspiration in bad girls, good girls, and all-out geeks. This book is a wonderful soiree to which everyone is invited.
