Now that my master class is complete, I hope you'll be inspired to pursue your love for fashion, your interest in design, and it will inspire you to create and explore your thoughts, your dreams, and live them. I would encourage you to ask questions, to use every tool imaginable, to get information, to learn about what it is that you want to do and how you want to say it, and to use every resource that's available to you, to be-- take risks, to be fearless, and to open a dialogue with anybody you can to get information, to share your thoughts, and to learn new things. That's what I would suggest. Love what you do, and never stop doing it.


Create your own trends

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.

I am very excited! I LOVE Marc and his class!!!

I feel inspired already. One of my fav. designers teaching me. I am just so thankful.

Whilst it is very focused on fashion, some learning and insights transcend beyond fashion. Love it!

This class was very informative with regard to process of design, and Mr. Jacobs was articulate and genuinely open about sharing his process.

This course is amazing! I'm an attorney looking to start a fashion brand - it has always been a passion of mine! So, I'm working as an Attorney by day (well and some nights) and working on my brand! Thank you Marc Jacobs!

Thank you for sharing with us!! I learned that with our imperfections and the process of repeating it, if we value became success. I liked when you shared that pattern is never done in the first time... I appreciate it. :)

Loved the way MJ explained his process and showed how fashion is so much more......

Have been following MJ lately on Instagram, and I have to say, even locked down I dress up, there is nothing more to fuel creativity than getting dressed up every day, because in the end if we look lousy we will feel lousy and we will have no inspiration what so ever. Love it and yes your Grunge Collection was something never to be forgotten. That 1993 Vogue spread is one of my favorites of my Vogue collection. Thank you

interesting- definitely learned new things through this course. I thought he was hesitant, constantly having trouble finding words. would prefer a designer with more Karizma,

Marc Jacobs is so inspiring, easy to listen too, love his expression" Love what you do never stop"

Marc Jacobs' class is informative and insightful with practical tips on how a mega-successful designer approaches his work and the fashion industry in general. He is incredibly down-to-earth and charming as he discusses his successes and even failures (the right wrong according to him) and his words are surely inspirational and educational whether you are a student or already a working professional. Thank you so much!

One of my favourite instructor and class in Master Class. Admire Marc Jacob's energy for creativity - so inspired.

I love Marc Jacobs, and this was an interesting peek into his thought processes. But MasterClass, the visual artists need to show more of their ideas and inspirations! There was a lot of repeated ideas and explanations here. I get it the first time , surely the second, third and fourth time repeating something should be accompanied by some visuals.....
