NEW ENTRY: MARC JACOBS
WOK meets Marc Jacobs for the upcoming Spring/Summer 2013 collection, and especially its causal and posh shoes, hats, accessories! We take for granted that all of you, friends of WOK and friends of fashion know who Marc is, but maybe not all of you know some interesting facts about him. This “crazy” designer is about to turn 50 in April (I know, he looks younger!), but he has been always a champion since the very beginning of his career. At Parson’s School of Design, the best in the US, he was the recipient of the Designer Student of the Year award. Then he received The Council of Fashion Designers of America (CFD) and went on to win seven CFDA awards, one success after another! In 1997 he was appointed Louis Vuitton’s Creative, besides having his own labels.
Apparently Marc really likes tattoos. In fact, the artist Scott Campbell has applied to his body around 30 of them! Among the others: an M+M’s character, a Simpsons-style portrait of Marc himself, a couch, and the phrases “Shameless”, “Bros before Hos”, and “Perfect”.
Another thing you may not know about Mr. Jacobs, is that once he even launched a challenge, asking his followers on Twitter to send the wittiest tweet to snag an interview for a job as his “personal Tweeter”. LOL!
You love him even more now, don’t you? So, stop by WOK Store to sneak a peek at this wonderful collection!
