Marc Bouwer is a fashion designer who was raised in South Africa and now works in New York City.Upon winning the South African Vogue Young Designers Award, Marc Bouwer moved to New York City to further pursue his dream of dressing Hollywood. Shortly after, Bouwer's portfolio raised the eyebrows of designer, Roy Halston Frowick. Bouwer apprenticed with Halston fine tuning his design skills, particularly draping. Bouwer's "cut" and modern use of stretch fabrics, such as jersey and spandex, in evening wear coined the term "bathing suit gown" and gave way to "athletic glamour" .Marc Bouwer Couture celebrates starlets as well as their iconic figures walking the red carpet on clients such as Zhang Ziyi, Beyoncé, Emily Blunt, and Lydia Hearst. Actress Angelina Jolie arrived at the 2004 Academy Awards in a white satin Marc Bouwer gown, later named one of the best Oscar dresses of all time by André Leon Talley.
