Everyone knows that fashion is a spectacle; that must be why it's called a fashion show! Well, no one is more of a showman than Marc Jacobs. From his clothing to his styling, Jacobs has been making an impression on the fashion world for more than a decade.

The challenge he sets for himself each season is, well, how do you top the last one? And the man in charge of finding the answers for much of the last decade has been Stefan Beckman, the brilliantly imaginative set designer.
