Abstract:

"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, upholded by a firm belief in style as a major cultural barometer. But most of all, his is the story of fashion's limitless potential to delight. the ultimate hip designer, Jacobs has achieved that status not via expressions of angst or outrage, but by celebrating fashion as a mirror on life's gleeful ironies. 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 of style to which everyone is invited"--Global Books in Print.
