When Marc Jacobs Got Fired

Runway is full of inspirational moments that make you go – WHAT?
I’ve been flipping through the pages of the most popular fashion magazines for a long time and through the years I have been impressed by the magic and creative ideas fashion designers bring to the Runway.
Here I’m going to be curating the most iconic runway moments and their impact on fashion!

For the first ever feature, let’s talk about Marc Jacobs and how he rose to fame after a fashion show that everyone thought would be the death of him as a designer.

In Spring 1992, Marc Jacobs presented a Read-To-Wear collection that was grunge-inspired during his stint at Perry Ellis.
“Grunge is Ghastly” critics declared and the next thing you know, Marc Jacobs got fired.
This very collection, became a Badge of Cool! He won the CFDA Womenswear Designer of the Year award that year. This collection laid the premise for his work to come and his imminent success.

Here’s a look back at some of the pieces from this show.

Midis – See through Florals and Plaid, all of these continue to rule the fashion scene even today, don’t you agree?
In fact these are among the top Fall/Winter trends of 2017/2018!

This got me thinking, what does the month of December start off with? Anxiousness!
“I haven’t achieved anything this year!”
“2017 is over already and I’m still stuck in the same rut”

And on and on it goes. Us getting anxious about the things we haven’t achieved this year and being shocked every time someone says the year is coming to an end. Thoughts of failure begin to creep in…

When I find myself doing this, this is the one iconic moment that I keep going back to:
And I tell myself, learn from Mark!
Don’t take failure too seriously.
It sometimes is just a wrapping paper for the best gifts life has to offer!

While we’re on the subject, here are some of my absolute favorites from Marc Jacobs!
Hope you like it too. 🙂
