Louis Vuitton - About the Brand
Founded in 1854 by Louis Vuitton, a French fashion designer and businessman, although it is commonly shortened to LV, the brand became famous in the late 19th century making leather trunks and luggage. As the brand grew and opened it's first London store in 1885 on Oxford Street, people began to imitate the Louis Vuitton style and so Vuitton created the Daimer Canvas pattern.
Contrary to what most people think, the Daimer Canvas pattern (designed in 1888) was the first Trademark registered by Louis Vuitton. It wasn't until 1896, under the ownership of George Vuitton (the founders son) that the famous LV Monogram Canvas pattern was registered. The style was an instant success and to this day it is the signature look of Louis Vuitton.
