In 1997 Marant won the Award de la Mode, and in 1998 – the Whirlpool Award for best female designer. Since the establishment of her label, her sales have increased 30% each year.
In 1998, she opened the first shop on Rue Charonne, in eastern Paris.The same year she started collaborating with French mail catalogue brand La Redoute creating guest collections for it, and launched a new line in Japan called I*M. In 1999 Marant debuted a diffusion line, Étoile by Isabel Marant, at the Paris ready-to-wear shows, and the next year introduced the first full Étoile collection. Etoile was intended to be more affordable and casual than the signature brand. The second shop was opened in Saint-Germain-des-Prés in 1999, followed by the third in the Marais in 2007, and the fourth in the 16th arrondissement in 2012.
In 2004, Marant launched a childrenswear line and a pop-up boutique in Paris' Printemps department store. She also collaborated with Anthropologie on a collection in 2006.

In 2013, Marant collaborated on a design collection for high street chain H&M. The line sold out in 45 minutes online and caused the retailer's website to crash. In her collaboration with H&M, Marant said, "The nice thing with H&M is they don't want to try to do a cheap version of your own collection… They really respect the DNA of designers." The clothing was described as a "combination of androgynous chic and bohemian nonchalance."
In 2014, Marant was named Contemporary Designer of the Year at the Elle Style Awards in 2014.
As of 2019, the company has 13 shops worldwide in cities such as Paris, Rome, New York, Tokyo, Hong Kong, Seoul, Los Angeles, Beijing, Madrid, Beirut, and London and has retailers in more than 35 countries.
