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