Marc Jacobs is known as a fashion designer for his ability to create the most dramatic and coveted collections season after season. It is a great pleasure to announce that Marc Jacobs, one of the most influential designers worldwide, is the new patron of the fashion designer award “Designer for Tomorrow by Peek & Cloppenburg Duesseldorf”!
As a fashion designer Marc Jacobs has been awarded with prestigious international fashion prizes from the beginning of his career and therefore understands well the importance that encouragement plays in the career of a young fashion designer. The New York designer will visit Berlin to inspect the collections of the five DfT finalists as well as to provide advice and coaching.
In July, Marc Jacobs – along with a world class jury of fashion experts – will pick the winner of the DfT 2011 during the Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week in Berlin. We are looking forward to a very exciting “Designer for Tomorrow” Award season with the designer Marc Jacobs!
