Good morning, pretty readers! Today’s designer is one I’m sure you’ve all heard about due to bags like this:
No offense to Louis Vuitton, but SNORE! Everyone seems to be having one of these, and that just makes it boring. Not Louis Vuitton’s fault, though. The brand is actually one of the most counterfeited in the world – shame! But the real LV luggage is still made by hand – that’s impressive. Anyway, I’m here to tell you, that the fashion house has so much more to offer than bags! Hold on to your glorious hats, and let me show you!
A little bit of history first – since we all know that the world is doomed if you don’t open your history book. (Not sure if that quotation was originally meant for fashion, but whatever). Louis Vuitton is a French fashion house founded in 1854, by none other than (drum roll, please) Louis Vuitton (1821-92). Before starting his own fashion house, Vuitton worked for Napoleon III’s wife – making her luggage and stuff.
In 1997, wonderful Marc Jacobs was hired as Art Director, and that’s when the clothes started happening. Ah, the clothes.
