To begin with, the boy was raised in Monterey Park, California, and was educated at Pasadena City College before enrolling at Chouinard Art Institute.

Concerning his professional career, Bob Mackie began as a sketch artist employed by Hollywood costume designer Jean Louis, the latter best known for dressing the cabaret singer Marlene Dietrich. In 1961, Mackie was appointed to work for costume designer Edith Head at the film studios of Paramount. At the end of the 1960s, Bob designed costumes for the television program “GIT: On Broadway”, specifically for the singing bands The Temptations, The Supremes and the singer Diana Ross. He was also the costume designer for the biographical drama film “Lady Sings the Blues” (1972) directed by Sidney J. Furie, for which Mackie was nominated for an Oscar in the category of the Best Costume Design. All helped towards his rising net worth.

In addition to designing costumes for films and television, Mackie is well known for dressing the burlesque shows in Las Vegas hotels, like the MGM Grand and Jubilee! It should also be noted, that Bob’s works sometimes have some sort of irony, like a curtain dress for Carol Burnett, which she wore starring in the comedy sketch “Went With the Wind!”, and exotic ensemble for Cher which included huge a headdress with feathers, knee length boots, black stretch trousers and chain-link top. To add more, the designer is also known for creating concert clothing and evening gowns during award ceremonies for Whitney Houston. Mackie has also created an exclusive dress collection for Barbie dolls. Overall, the works of the designer can be described by his quotation: “A woman who wears my clothes is not afraid to be noticed.”

Finally, in the personal life of the fashion designer, Mackie was married to LuLu Porter from 1960 to 1963, and had a son named after his father, Robert Gordon Mackie Jr. who died in 1994 because of an illness caused by AIDS. Since the 1970s, Bob and Ray Aghayan (costume designer) were partners until the death of Ray (2011).
