Who is Louis Vuitton
Why is Louis Vuitton better than other brand names?
When he was only sixteen years old, Louis Vuitton made a decision that would not only change his own life but the lives of his sons and future generations he would become, a trunk maker.
When Napoleon assumed the title of Emperor of the French in 1852, his wife hired Louis Vuitton as her personal box-maker and packer. This was Louis Vuitton's big hit to start his own company.
During the Franco-Prussian War, from 1870-71, Vuitton's workshop was looted and destroyed. Once the war ended he set up a new workshop in an aristocratic area of central Paris
Louis Vuitton was a French entrepreneur and designer whose name has become iconic in the fashion world.
As if November 4, 2014 the LV named brand has made over 29.9 Billion dollars.
Louis Vuitton didn't want to become a craft maker but his father and faith forced him to.
Louis Vuitton was married at the age of 17
By 1888, he had his trademark signature brown and tan checked pattern, a literal demarcation of authenticity turned motif.
Louis Vuitton died 5 years later, passing his growing empire to his son, George Vuitton, who introduced the iconic monogrammed canvas we know today, and patented the graphic by 1914.

The teenage Vuitton was taken in as an apprentice in the workshop of a successful box-maker and packer named Monsieur Marechal.
In 19th century Europe, box-making and packing was a highly respectable and urbane craft.
It took Vuitton only a few years to stake out a reputation amongst Paris's fashionable class as one of the city's premier practitioners of his new craft.

Louis Vuitton was a French box-maker and packer who founded the luxury brand of the same name over 150 years ago. From humble beginnings in the French countryside, Vuitton's skill, innovation and determination quickly saw his signature trunks coveted by the world's elite. Now, with Marc Jacobs at the helm as creative director since 1997, the house has expanded its offering to include bags, clothing, shoes, accessories and jewellery, making it one of the most valuable luxury brands in the world.
Upon arrival in Paris in 1837, Vuitton became an apprentice at a successful box-making and packing workshop - a craft that was highly respected at the time. Within a few years he had gained a reputation as one of the best in his field in the city.

Crafted with much precision and passion, the brand is very touchy about its designs, so much so it trademarked the striped pattern, even making the color combinations its signature. Nonetheless, the brand’s increasing popularity only heightened counterfeits. That’s when Louis Vuitton’s son came up with the idea of the famous Louise Vuitton Monogram – three floral motifs and the founder’s initials interlaced, the LV signature we are quite acquainted with.
