Marc Ascoli established his career in the 1980s as artistic director for Yohji Yamamoto. He has since created a portfolio of work that includes some of contemporary fashion’s most iconic images. His renowned collaboration with Jil Sander in the 1990s clinched his status as an original and sophisticated voice at the forefront of fashion and luxury. His work with brands such as Paco Rabanne, Martine Sitbon, Chloé, Hugo Boss, Loro Piana and Giorgio Armani have further exemplified his signature visual style.

Significant projects have also been realized in collaboration with Paolo Roversi, Karim Sadli and Peter Lindbergh.
