Robert Marc Biography Portrait

Renowned eyewear designer Robert Marc opened his first shop 35 years ago in New York City with the philosophy that “eyewear should enhance the vision of one’s self”. Robert quickly established a global reputation by creating one of the first boutiques to bring eyewear in to the forefront of fashion.

Having designed and consulted on many of the world’s most successful premier eyewear collections, Robert launched his signature collection of luxury eyewear in 1999—for which Vogue magazine announced, “Robert makes his Marc.” This collection represents his vision towards the modern, classic and instantly recognizable. Each Robert Marc frame is handcrafted and subtly branded with the trademarked Robert Marc signature hinge. As testament to his sophisticated designs and influence in elevating eyewear to its current position as a couture accessory, Robert was inducted into the CFDA (Council of Fashion Designers of America) in 2001. The Accessories Council honored Robert in 2011 with a Visionary ACE Award, recognizing his impressive and meaningful contributions to the fashion eyewear world.

Robert Marc caters to a wide range of celebrity clients and his designs turn up everywhere from the most fashionable metropolitan streets and designer runway shows to major motion pictures and television productions. Robert Marc Collection eyewear is sold in 8 Robert Marc stores in NYC as well as select retailers throughout the Americas, Europe, Asia and Australia.
