LVMH prize 2017 smallTwenty one designers have been shortlisted by the selection committee of the Prize, under the supervision of Delphine Arnault, who states: 

“The increasing numbers of candidates for the LVMH Prize for Young Fashion Designers prove once more the enthusiasm generated by the Prize, which is strongly committed to its international dimension. For the 2017 edition, we have selected 21 designers from Australia, Denmark, France, Germany, Ireland, Japan, Korea, New Zealand, Russia, Spain, Taiwan, Turkey, the United Kingdom and the United States. They will meet in Paris on March 2 and 3, 2017, to showcase their work for the benefit of the experts and the members of a remarkable jury, who will assist them. Menswear asserts its strong presence in the selection, alongside women’s inspiring collections, strong on high-grade know-how. This year, two distinct characteristics stand out among the propositions of the candidates: first, streetwear in various forms influences many collections; and second, the gender diversity of the designs is emblematic of this edition. Boldness is the keyword of the creations of these 21 young designers. LVMH felt a duty to create this Prize that rewards young designers but above all nurtures tomorrow’s talent.”

The LVMH Prize will be awarded by the Jury on 16 June at the Fondation Louis Vuitton. Not forgetting to mention, three young graduates from fashion schools will be awarded the Graduate Prize that remains open to applications until 15th May.
