with Gillion Carrara
MARC JACOBS & LOUIS VUITTON
With unprecedented access to one of the world's hottest (and busiest) designers, Loïc Prigent has created an intimate and revealing portrait of the reclusive Marc Jacobs and the world of haute couture and the people who create it and drive it. In the offices, workrooms, backstage and at the fashion show, in the car and home of Marc Jacobs, in Paris and New York, we see a genius at work, balancing unimaginable pressure to chart new paths in the universe of fashion as he straddles the demands of a fashion conglomerate (Louis Vuitton) and his own New York-based Marc Jacobs label.
Directed by Loïc Prigent, France, 2007, DVD, 83 mins. In English and French with English subtitles.
Introduced and followed by a Facets Cinechat with Gillion Carrara, Director, Fashion Resource Center and Adjunct Professor, School of the Art Institute of Chicago.
Gillion Carrara is director of the Fashion Resource Center and Adjunct Professor at the School of the Art Institute of Chicago, a fashion and art historian and artist who has worked extensively in theories, facts and designer profiles regarding contemporary and avant garde dress.
