The American fashion designer studied at Parsons School of Design in New York and while there, he designed a collection of hand-knit sweaters.

He formed Jacobs Duffy Designs Inc with his long-term creative collaborator and business partner, Robert Duffy, in the mid-1980s.

In 1986, he launched his first collection under the Marc Jacobs name and in 1988, Jacobs became the youngest ever designer to be awarded the American fashion industry’s highest tribute: the Council of Fashion Designers of America’s Perry Ellis Award for “New Fashion Talent”. his was a huge moment for the designer and on receiving the award he said, "“I’m very nervous, but I’m also, probably, the very most happiest person in the room.”

1989 was a big year for Jacobs as he hired Tom Ford to work on womenswear and launched his first collection for Perry Ellis, which incorporated the American flag as one of its main themes.

1993 saw Jacob Duffy Designs Inc launch their own design company: Marc Jacobs International Company, L.P. The year after, Jacobs launched his first collection of menswear and in 1997, he was appointed creative director of Louis Vuitton and he created the luxury brand’s first ready-to-wear line. He announced his departure from the brand in 2013.

2001 was the year Jacobs introduced his secondary line, Marc by Marc Jacobs.

2005 was time to launch a line for children entitled Little Marc and in September of that year he was named as one of Vogue's "Magnificent Seven" innovative designers.

He branched out in 2006, launching a range of perfumes. Although initially only sold in perfume boutiques, they are now widely available.
