Marc Jacobs grew up in New York City and began to study design at a young age. In the process of holding prominent creative positions at both Perry Ellis and Louis Vuitton, Jacobs developed his own collections, one of which won him the fashion industry's most prestigious award, the Council of Fashion Designers of America's award for "New Fashion Talent." At the age of 24, he was the youngest designer to ever receive this award. In 2010, Marc Jacobs appeared in Time magazine's "2010 Time 100" list of 100 most influential people in the world. Marc Jacobs collections now include apparel for both men and women, shoes, handbags, jewelry, perfume, eyewear, and watches.
