As a child, Marc Bouwer was fascinated by the movies and the beautiful women of Hollywood. Little did he know that decades later, as a celebrated American couturier, his designs would set a thousand red carpet cameras flashing.
Shortly after arriving in NYC, he met fashion legend Halston. What happened next may have been Marc's own first Hollywood moment: "I think you got something, kid!" were the legend's memorable words after seeing Marc's portfolio. On cue, Halston offered him a job and the young designer's future began to unfold. Under Halston, Marc refined his skills, becoming a master draper. Draping soon became the hallmark of Bouwer's career — a distinction later dubbed "athletic glamour" by industry purveyors and international press.
Marc's innate sensibility, keen eye, and undeniable talent have landed him on the pages of revered international fashion publications and into the hearts of the world's most glamorous and watched women. In addition to a roster of celebrated runway reviews and feature articles, Marc Bouwer Couture has graced the cover of Harper's Bazaar, Oprah, Cosmopolitan, Instyle, Vanity Fair, Glamour, Vibe Magazine and more.
