And the Winner is....
Note to Marc Jacobs:
You are the winner of the Favorite American Designer poll, by a significant margin. It is not hard to see why you won. Your collections are both innovative yet wearable which is not an easy task. I think that having three lines helps you please the Paris Fashion Week crowd and the rest of us "regular" fashionistas. When you design for Louis Vuitton you are able to create luxurious pieces and go as high end with your creations as you can. Your Marc Jacobs line allows you to have creative freedom and put your edgy and avant garde pieces into a collection. The Marc by Marc Jacobs line allows your to create more basic pieces that will sell for almost affordable prices, so the few of us without American Express Black Cards can still afford clothing by you. Any way, we at Fashion Noted, love love love you and are always waiting with baited breath to see what you have coming up next. Also, you are looking tanned, toned and fabulous lately, but I hope you realize that we loved you back before your new bod and tan. No matter what you look like, it is your creations that won us over.
Note to Readers:
Thank you for voting on this poll. I thought it would be fun to spotlight American Designers while we are cheering on America in the Olympics. As per Fashion Noted tradition, I am going to post some of my favorite designs from all three collections Marc is involved in from the Fall 2008 Ready to Wear runway shows. Enjoy!
This houndstooth Mini-dress from the Marc by Marc Jacobs collection is on my "want" list from the show.
I like the way this look breaks up the body and plays with a new silhouette. It is from the Marc Jacobs collection.
I love the big collar on this sweater dress from the Louis Vuitton collection that Marc is the head designer for. I wouldn't necessarily wear the hat, but it looks dramatic in a fashion show.
