WWD reports today that after months of rumors Jacobs is finally leaving and preparing to take the Marc Jacobs brand public. Jacobs’ successor at Louis Vuitton has not been named but strong indicators continue to point to Nicolas Ghesquière as the front-runner.
Marc Jacobs fashion shows under the Louis Vuitton brand in Paris were something to see. A mixture of Art and Fashion he had a carousel one year, an elevator, a Pop Art escalator, a full functioning train and last fall he had the entire floor of a “hotel”.
This year he went out with a bang and had a giant fountain in the middle of the floor, the models walked around it wearing giant feather head pieces.
Take a look at some of the pictures of the last Marc Jacobs for Louis Vuitton fashion show at Paris Fashion Week in the slideshow.
