Marc Jacobs keeps expanding his fashion offerings. His secondary line, Marc by Marc Jacobs, was introduced in 2001 and was an immediate hit with young women everywhere. The secondary line is not so far off in inspiration and feeling from his main focus. His design empire has consistently expanded.

His first European store opened in 2006 in Paris and was followed by a store in London a year later. The children's line, Little Marc Jacobs, debuted in 2007. Fragrance, eyewear and accessories are now available all over the world. Unlike other designers whose collections seem to evolve from the previous season, each Marc Jacobs show explores a distinct look.
