Marc Jacobs has unearthed a set of show notes from one of his first fashion shows.
The designer took to Instagram on Wednesday (02Jan19) to post a photo of a series of scribbles he had written on a piece of paper from the Eden Roc hotel at Miami Beach, Florida while planning his spring 1987 show along with his creative collaborator and business partner Robert Duffy.
Along with the names of the models he wanted to cast, which included Naomi Campbell, Cindy Crawford, Bethann Hardison, Elle Macpherson and Gail Elliott, Jacobs had selected Maria de Schneider to do the make-up and Oribe Canales, who died suddenly at the age of 62 last month (Dec18), to take charge of the models’ hair.
“Whoa!!!! Completely blown away by this artefact of 1987 thanks to @longnguyennyc It was my program notes/credits from my Miami Beach inspired show (before South Beach had really fully developed). It took place in the (Onward) Kashiyama showroom on Seventh Avenue. Fun fact: It was my first show that Anna Wintour attended. She was then the Editor in Chief of HG (which was her new name for House and Garden),” he captioned the snap.
Jacobs also tagged his supermodel pals in the post and added hashtags such as “#humblebeginnings” and “#gratefulnothateful”.
However, the designer’s moment of nostalgia comes just days after it was announced that former members of grunge band Nirvana were suing him over the alleged theft of their smiley face logo.
In legal documents, lawyers claimed that the group, made up of late frontman Kurt Cobain, bassist Krist Novoselic and drummer Dave Grohl, have owned the trademark to the design since 1992, and alleged that a similar logo in Jacobs’ re-released Bootleg Redux Grunge collection was a “blatant ripoff”. Jacobs is yet to comment on the lawsuit.
