Bon Anniversaire M'sieur!!!!

Louis Vuitton was born on August 4, 1821 in Jura, France (now part of the commune of Lavans-sur-Valouse), but moved to Paris in 1835. The trip from his hometown to Paris was over 400 kilometers, and he traveled the distance by foot. On his way there he picked up a series of odd jobs to pay for his journey. Two years later, at the age of 16, he apprenticed for the luggage manufacturer Monsieur Marechal. In 1854 he founded the company, which is now known as the world famous Louis Vuitton. Such humble beginnings for the world's most luxurious brand. Celebrating with all you LV LVoers out there!!! Happy birthday!!!
