Marc Jacobs

Creative Director, Marc Jacobs

Marc Jacobs was born in New York City on April 9, 1963. After graduating from the High School of Art and Design in 1981 he entered Parson’s School of Design. As a design student at Parson’s, Jacobs was the recipient of some of the school’s highest honors including Design Student of the Year.

In 1986 Jacobs designed his first collection with the Marc Jacobs label. The following year, Jacobs received the distinct honor of being the youngest designer ever to be awarded the fashion industry’s highest tribute: The Council of Fashion Designers of America (CFDA) Perry Ellis Award for New Fashion Talent.

Jacobs and business partner Robert Duffy joined Perry Ellis as Vice-President of Women’s Design and President respectively in 1989. In 1992, the CFDA once again bestowed Jacobs with a distinct honor: the Women’s Designer of the Year Award for his fabled Grunge Collection.

In the fall of 1993, Jacobs Duffy Designs Inc. launched their own licensing and design company: Marc Jacobs International Company, L.P.  Jacobs and Duffy joined Louis Vuitton in 1997, Jacobs as Artistic Director and Duffy as Studio Director. They also opened the first Marc Jacobs free standing store on Mercer Street in New York’s Soho district.
Jacobs introduced the secondary line, Marc by Marc Jacobs, with a spring 2001 runway show. He has gone on to win multiple CFDA awards including Womenswear Designer of the Year, Accessories Designer of the Year, Menswear designer of the year and the 2011 Geoffrey Beene Lifetime Achievement Award.

With over 200 free standing stores across the globe, Marc Jacobs International now includes Women’s and Men’s RTW and accessories under both the Marc Jacobs Collection and Marc by Marc Jacobs labels, a children’s line called Little Marc Jacobs, multiple award winning fragrances, the bookstore Bookmarc and most recently Marc Jacobs Beauty, which was launched in August of 2013.

Jacobs and Duffy continue to run the company and are committed to giving back to the communities where they have stores and beyond. They have been involved with over 100 charities worldwide and the ongoing support of many of these charitable projects—as well as new collaborations--continues to be a top priority.

Karl Lagerfeld

Creative Director, Fendi

Karl Lagerfeld was born in Hamburg in September 1938. A cosmopolitan education and knowledge of languages enabled him to finish his studies in Paris.

In 1955 he won the first prize in the contest organized by the secrétariat international de la laine (International Wool Association). The coat the young winner designed was produced by Pierre Balmain and at 17 Lagerfeld became the great designer’s assistant. He stayed with him for three years before becoming art director for Jean Patou, where he remained for five satisfying but unusually calm years, for his taste. This relative freedom allowed him to deepen his knowledge in subjects that had passionately interested him for years: history, architecture, music and especially eighteenth-century French. When ready-to-wear came into its own at the beginning of the 60s, he plunged into a career as an independent stylist in France, Italy, England and Germany. The concept of fur needed modernization to become a viable element of fashion. So, the House of FENDI called on Lagerfeld-a collaboration that continues to this day. Perfume is as important as fashion for Lagerfeld, so in 1975 he launched “CHLOE”. He became the first great ready-to-wear designer to brand a scent globally without first having his own designer label. Then followed “LAGERFELD” for men in 1978, “PHOTO” in 1991, “JAKO” in 1998 and Kapsule, the first fragrance collaboration with the Coty group in 2008.

In 1984 he created his own line “KARL LAGERFELD” while continuing both his collaboration with the house of CHANEL, where he was named art director in 1983, and his longstanding collaboration with FENDI. He also signed the new collections for CHLOE from 1992 to 1997. His constant interest in new experiences led Lagerfeld to illustrate Hans Christian Anderson’s “The Emperor’s New Clothes”. He created as well opera costumes for La Scala, the Florence opera house, the Burgtheater of Vienna and for the Salzbourg festival, and the Monte-Carlo ballet. He decided to move behind the lens in 1987, with his first press kit, and from this time on Lagerfeld created his own advertising campaigns. His passion for photography and for books transformed his campaigns into veritable art books (published by Steidl), while continuing photo shoots for prestigious fashion magazines.

In 1998 he began a new adventure. He launched his own label, LAGERFELD GALLERY. November 1999 saw the opening of the bookshop “7L”, followed by the publishing company “EDITIONS 7L” in October 2000. He had now become publisher and bookshop owner.In 2000 Lagerfeld changed his look, redefining his image. Will-power and a drastic self-imposed diet helped him lose 42 kilograms (93 lbs) giving up a style that no longer fitted his personality. He wrote a book “THE 3D DIET” (Designer, Doctor, Diet) about his unusual experience. It sold in the tens of thousands throughout the world.

In 2004 Lagerfeld designed a collection of 30 models for the giant company, H&M, under the “Karl Lagerfeld for H&M” label. In 2008, he enters Le Petit Larousse Illustré (French dictionary). 

In 2010, Karl Lagerfeld receives The Couture Council Fashion Visionary Award by the Fashion Institute of Technology (FIT) in New York. 

In January 2012, he launches the KARL LAGERFELD brand’s new concept. A vision of accessible luxury exclusively on Internet. The first KARL LAGERFELD store opened one year later, boulevard Saint-Germain, favorite neighborhood of the designer… Followed by many stores (Amsterdam, Berlin, Munich, Beijing, Shanghai among many others around the world).

Humberto Leon & Carol Lim

Creative Directors, Kenzo

Humberto Leon and Carol Lim co-founded Opening Ceremony in 2002 in New York. They became Creative Directors of KENZO in July 2011. The design duo have been close friends since meeting during their university days at UC Berkeley in California.
They made their name in the early 2000s when they created Opening Ceremony, a New York fashion store with a dynamic Web presence. Alongside their multiple personal ready-to-wear and accessories creations, Humberto Leon and Carol Lim have been the impetus behind myriad collaborations and launches with other brands and designers, always awaited with great anticipation.


From their beginnings, Carol and Humberto have never shied away from shaking up fashion, imagining new realms of creativity that consistently delight the public with their energy, creativity and sheer pleasure.

Phoebe Philo

Creative Director, Céline

British designer Phoebe Philo was born in Paris and raised in London. She studied at the Central Saint Martins College of Art and Design in London, graduating in 1996.
She began her career at Chloé in 1997 as design assistant for ready-to-wear, becoming creative director in 2001. After transforming Chloé into a global luxury brand lauded for both its ready-to-wear and accessories, Phoebe Philo stepped down in 2006 to focus on her private life.


In September 2008 she became Creative Director of Céline and a member of the board of directors of Céline SA. She presented her first collection for Céline in June 2009.
The British Fashion Council named her “Fashion Designer of The Year” in December  2010 and she was honored as “International Designer of the Year” by the CFDA in June 2011.
Phoebe works in London, where she lives with her husband and three children.

Raf Simons

Creative Director, Dior

Raf Simons was born in Belgium in 1968. After studying architecture and industrial design he turned his attention to fashion design.  His style is characterized by a pure architectural essence and is strongly influenced by the arts and music. He was named creative director of Christian Dior Couture in 2012, in charge of haute couture, women’s ready-to-wear and accessories collections. A great admirer of Christian Dior, whom he considers the greatest fashion designer of all time, Raf Simons interprets the past to propel it into the future with a resolutely modern take on refined elegance. His work masterfully perpetuates Christian Dior’s architectural vision of clothes.


“Monsieur Dior was the ultimate couture architect,” Raf Simons says. “He constructed his clothes with total perfection, but often added a detail designed to break this perfection. This gave his clothes that touch of soul that made them part of the women who wore them. His incredible sense of gesture and detail lets you understand how much he loved women.”

Riccardo Tisci

Creative Director, Givenchy

Riccardo Tisci was born in 1974 in Cermenate, near Como, Italy, the youngest in a family of nine children and the only boy. At 17, after studying design at the Design Istituto d’Arte de Cantù, he decided to leave his native Italy to study fashion design in London.


Upon graduating from the prestigious Central Saint Martin’s School in 1999 he returned to Italy where he worked for a number of brands including Antonio Berardi, Coccapani, Puma and Ruffo Research. This diverse and enriching experience enabled him to shape a distinctive approach to his métier. On the strength of this experience he affirmed his independence, creating his eponymous label.


Following several months in India he returned to Milan in September 2004 to present his first “Riccardo Tisci” collection. Orchestrated as a full-fledged “happening” outside the fashion week schedule, the striking show proved a memorable event. Beyond the runway experience, the collection expressed a fresh elegance and a modern vision of powerful women. In the wake of the success of his second collection with the media and buyers, in February 2005 Givenchy made Riccardo Tisci creative director of the house for Haute Couture, Ready-to-Wear and Women’s Accessories.


On July 7, 2005, at the age of 29, Riccardo Tisci presented his first Givenchy Haute Couture collection. After three years as head of the women’s department he was also named creative director for men’s ready-to-wear and accessories. In addition to his work on Givenchy collections he has led the house’s collaborations on a wide variety of projects, including stage costumes, art books, store design, a perfume (Dahlia Noir), and creative direction for a music album.

Delphine Arnault

Delphine Arnault is a graduate of  the EDHEC business school and the London School of Economics. She began her career with the consulting firm McKinsey & Co. before joining the LVMH Group in 2000. In 2001 she became a member of the Executive Committee of Christian Dior Couture, where she has been Deputy Managing Director between 2008 and 2013. In September 2013 she was named Executive Vice President of Louis Vuitton, overseeing all Louis Vuitton product-related activities.

Jean-Paul Claverie

Advisor to Bernard Arnault

Jean-Paul Claverie, after attending both the faculty of law and of medicine, enters Jack Lang‘s office, Minister of Culture and Communication, where he occupies in turn the positions of official representative for international cultural relations and Special Adviser to the Minister himself. Having played an active role in the preparations for the celebrations surrounding the Bicentenary of the French Revolution in 1989, he takes the conscious decision in the early 1990s to make the switch to the world of business. This variety of functions fulfilled in the service of the State has indeed enabled Jean-Paul Claverie to develop an in-depth and innovative view of the role of the company within society as a whole - in terms of the economy, of course, but from the social, cultural and educational aspects as well.


In the summer of 1990, Jean-Paul Claverie had a meeting with Bernard Arnault, who had only recently been appointed Chairman of LVMH, which was to prove decisive. In 1991 he joines LVMH as Adviser to the Chairman. He suggests to Bernard Arnault an extremely original global institutional communication strategy based on culture, creativity, know-how, the art of living, youth and solidarity. For LVMH, this communication is effected by means of large-scale initiatives of general interest and sponsorship, in which the economic success of the Group can bring benefit to the greatest possible number. This innovative approach has two main objectives: to express the values of know-how of French creativity as a player throughout the world in the expression of the French art of living, and at the same time to establish the identity of LVMH by means of projects aimed at all publics, especially young people. 30 major national and international exhibitions will be staged or instigated with the Réunion des Musées nationaux, the Pompidou Centre or the Modern Art Museum of the City of Paris, along with actions to enrich or restore the national heritage. A novel campaign for the benefit of young people has also been running with the inclusion of thousands of young people in academic competitions, study bursaries and educational classes, or again, aid towards the training of young amateur musicians along with assistance for new virtuosi such as Maxim Vengerov in the form of the loan of Stradivarius instruments from the Group's collection.


Humanitarian activities also form an important part of LVMH sponsorship, in the form of support provided for the elderly, for sick children and for medical research.

In October 2006, this development reaches a recent achievement with the announcement of the Louis Vuitton Foundation which will be located in Paris in a building designed by the famous American architect Frank Gehry.

Pierre-Yves Roussel

Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of the LVMH Fashion Division

Pierre-Yves Roussel was born in France in 1965. After obtaining an MBA from Wharton Business School, he began his career as an analyst with the bank CCF before joining the consulting firm McKinsey & Co., where he held a series of executive positions before becoming a partner in 1998 and then senior partner in 2004.


He joined LVMH in 2004 as Executive Vice President, Strategy and Operations. In 2006 he was named Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of the LVMH Fashion Division, which includes numerous prestigious brands (Céline, Givenchy, Kenzo, Loewe, Marc Jacobs, Pucci and Rossimoda). He is a member of the LVMH Executive Committee.
