Before I started KiC, I was a casting director. I booked the models for Vogue for 10 years until I decided it was time to try show casting.
One of my first shows was Louis Vuitton with Marc. It was probably his 4th season with the house. Marc and I had known each other since college having spent a very fun (and blisteringly hot) summer in Paris studying together. When I arrived at the Vuitton atelier to start the SS01 casting I was told I would be sharing a table with Marc’s friend Stephen, who was also working on the show. For a week I sorted through model cards and did countless go-sees, while next to me, Stephen Sprouse painted graffiti on an enormous stack of LV canvas bags. And the rest is history.
Good luck Marc.
