From Japan to America, the LV sign dominates the fashion scene. And, one man alone designs the Louis Vuitton creations. The film offers an intimate and revealing portrait of the reclusive Marc Jacobs and the world of haute couture. Whether in the offices and workrooms of Paris and New York, the back of his car, or backstage at a fashion show, we see a genius at work. Jacobs endures unimaginable pressure to chart new paths in fashion as he straddles the demands of the Louis Vuitton conglomerate and his own Marc Jacobs label.
The film really does put a person to the designer. You actually see his creative process and follow him through idea to finished product, very interesting to be in the workshop hands-on.
