Recently listed by Out Magazine as one of the "50 Most Powerful Men and Women in America" designer Marc Jacobs is nothing if not a fashion icon.

Marc put that star power to good use during the course of the Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week in Berlin. Marc was announced as the new patron of the young fashion talent award "Designers for Tomorrow by Peek & Cloppenburg." Jacobs hand selected the five finalists and each received personal coaching by Marc through the Fashion Week.

Want to learn more about the man behind the icon, try watching the documentary called Marc Jacobs and Louis Vuitton by film maker Loic Prigent.

"I really think about the clothes and the cut of the clothes, so we try to work the decoration into the seams. We've added borders, piping and again more top stitching -- things that give dimension to otherwise flat fabrics" - Marc Jacobs
