Designer Marc Jacobs announced this week that his upcoming Spring/Summer ad campaign will feature transgender director and producer Lana Wachowski.

In an Instagram post, he captioned a photo of Wachowski modeling a blue checkered dress and cardigan: “Lana Wachowski stars in the Marc Jacobs Spring/Summer 2016 ad campaign.”

Wachowski, along with her brother Andy Wachowski, is best known for the Matrix film franchise. The Wachowskis also are behind last year's Netflix supernatural drama Sense8, which prominently featured several gay and transgender characters.

“This season’s ad campaign represents a series of connected events; a visual narrative,” Jacobs wrote of his upcoming campaign. “It is a personal diary of people who have and continue to inspire me and open my mind to different ways of seeing and thinking. The spectrum of individuals photographed in our Spring/Summer 2016 ad campaign represent a celebration of my America.”

He added that he was inspired by a speech Wachowski delivered in accepting the Human Rights Campaign's (HRC) 2012 Visibility Award.

“She expressed thoughts and ideas that have filled my head and heart always but had never been so eloquently captured in language that was so tangible, intelligent, poignant and full of possibility,” he wrote. “I found myself referencing Lana’s words in my daily life and sharing her speech with close friends. In the days before our Spring/Summer ‘16 fashion show and through a fateful series of communications, much to my incomprehensible delight, Lana accepted an invitation to our show in New York City and thus I took her, 'fashion show virginity.'”
