Marc Jacobs concluded the WWD summit with a jolt of glamour, candor and unabashed enthusiasm for fashion. Taking questions from WWD’s executive editor Bridget Foley and audience members, Jacobs revealed how he has been served by his creative instincts, unrelenting passion and enlightened refusal to pass judgment on people. The artistic force behind Louis Vuitton, Marc Jacobs and Marc by Marc Jacobs stressed the power of tenacity and conviction.
