Design, Photography, & Fashion
Lesson time 4:10 min
Meet Marc. In his first lesson, the CFDA Award-winning designer describes the scope of his class, from inspiration to runway shows, and explains his goal: to inspire, encourage, and enlighten you on your journey in fashion.
Topics include: Introduction
This MasterClass is for you. You, who is interested in fashion for a career, and a life in fashion, or a career in fashion. Or just because, like me, fashion is something that interests you and inspires you, delights you. This MasterClass is for anybody who's ever wondered about what the process of putting a show together is, what putting a collection together is, what the life of a designer is like, what the daily ins and outs of making things, creating things, transmitting ideas through fashion is about. The goal of this class is for me to share with you my experiences to stimulate you to have your own experiences through my experiences. Or through sharing my experiences with you by outlining how my process is, how my thought processes, how my actual processes are in terms of making a collection, putting a collection together, designing clothes, having a show. I think the goal is to enlighten you, and to inspire you, and to encourage you. I will also be discussing in this class how to work with fabrics, the properties of different fibers and different fabrics, conceptualizing an idea, construction techniques. I will be discussing contrasting thoughts and ideas, inspirations, collaborations. I will communicate those ideas by showing you garments on the figure and explaining my thought process, pointing out seams, and details, construction. I will share with you some of my background in terms of education, how I learned about certain things. I will share with you my references towards to art, to music, to style, and culture. And I'll do a lot more talking. There are things that I will discuss that I wish I knew starting out. I couldn't get enough information. I mean, there wasn't enough information in the world for me when I was starting out. I would have loved to have hours of my favorite designer or a designers speaking to me about their process, about what they went through, how they learned about fabric, how they learned about pattern making, how they built a collection, how they put on a show, how they collaborated with others to create and transmit a message and a story. I would have loved that. I'm Marc Jacobs, and this is my MasterClass.
Marc Jacobs’s infamous grunge collection got him fired. It also won him the CFDA Womenswear Designer of the Year Award. In his first online fashion design class, the 11-time CFDA Award winner teaches his hands-on process for creating clothes that push boundaries and set trends. Learn Marc’s construction techniques, how he creates unique shapes and silhouettes, and how you can develop your own ideas from the first sketch to the final piece.
This class has been very enlightening. Although I am not a fan of the instructors style of clothing and fashion design I do appreciate how he encourages to research and study different brands and understand why you like them. I also like his approach to creative runways for models and he takes time to find something that genuinely stands out. I really enjoyed this class.
This Master Class has inspired me to keep your dreams alive and never feel bad about asking questions. I appreciate Marc for opening up and teaching me so many new things! Thank you Master Class!
Marc was such an inspiration, i've cleared my mind a bit listening his story and relating to him because of the effort and the follow your heart part. i loved how i can be closer to this fashion master and know him better as a designr and as a person.
I enjoy the insight and instruction from someone who is involved in the fashion industry. I feel like a whole new world has opened up to me.
