Louis Vuitton is unarguably the most adored fashion mogul in the history of mankind. The man has ruled the fashion industry for several decades, even after he died. The legacy of Vuitton is undoubtedly one of its kind.

Born in Anchay, which is 230 miles away from Paris in France, Louis Vuitton travelled to French Capital at the age of 16. In 1837, Louis Vuitton arrived in Paris and began working for the trunk-making company of Monsieur Marechal. He quickly became famous for his craftsmanship. His designs were appreciated across the region. Soon, Vuitton was a brand name for trunks in the entire country.

Innovations that the brand made include, an unpick-able lock, which was forwarded by Georges Vuitton, Louis son. This utilized a novel closeting system that prevented thievery. Moreover, he also introduced new tricks for luggage and packing industry at the same time.

This was making him a brand name in the industry. The people at that time were looking for the new arrivals from his brand. He had created his own brand by 1854: Rue Neuve des Capucines. Thus, his brand was making up as a giant for the luggage and packing industry in those times.

Although, the LV brand wasn’t existing at all at that time. Yet, Louis Vuitton was a known name in the luggage industry. Further, the operations of his company were increasing with every passing day and he had to expand. Yet, it wasn’t in his lifetime that the LV brand came into the light.

By 1890, his 33 year old son Georges was at the helm of affairs and he was managing the operations of his business. It was during his time that LV was registered as a monogram in 1896.

While Louis Vuitton wasn’t alive to see the success of his endeavor. The world saw the success of his craftsmanship after decades of his burial.
