His designs are described as brightly coloured, impeccably detailed, flawlessly structured, and fashion-forward with a classic twist. <br />Marc Jacobs explains about the thought process behind his designs, "I love that reaction of love or hate. It's indifference that bores me to death."<br />Since 1997, he has been the Creative Director of the famous French design house Louis Vuitton which was primarily known for their luxury luggage until he created their first ready-to-wear clothing line. The label has worked in conjunction with Stephen Sprouse, Richard Prince and rapper Kanye West.<br />
