Fashion designer Marc Jacobs has spoken on young fashion designers, admitting that he believes they often aren't particularly unique. Marc thinks many of them have the same ideas and so it has "no substance". He comments that while designers are trying desperately to be edgy, it isn't actually rebellious or original at all. He explained: "You know, I am an older person now, I'm going to be 52 in a couple of months. But I look at young fashion and it seems like it's all the same - the idea of what is edgy or cool. It's style with no substance; it doesn't really seem born of anything. I don't see the rebellion or edge in it. It just looks like a cliché: salad oil in the hair, Frankenstein shoes and the trappings of punk and all these other things."

Marc loves how quickly fashion can change and is happy to interpret design as he sees it at any given moment. He thinks rapidly changing ideas are what makes fashion so interesting: "I love how the reality of fashion is all about something for that moment and then the extremity of dismissal. I have often been criticised for doing an about-face from one season to the next - as has my wonderfully inspiring lady designer whom I love so much, Miuccia Prada - but that is what I love about fashion."

He adds that he just loves how quick paced trends are, and he likes that it's all about living in the moment and looking the part immediately: "I love that kind of dedication, devotion - obsession with what looks so amazing that you have to have it now. And then saying next season, 'Well I wouldn't be caught dead in it.' I love the obscenity and the perversity of that."
