Meet the finalists for the LVMH Prize 2019

In case you’re wondering, LVMH is oficially LVMH Moët Hennessy Louis Vuitton SE – a multinational luxury goods conglomerate with many companies under its umbrella beyond the ones in their name. The LVMH young Fashion Designers’ competition is open to designers from every country who have produced at least two collections and who are under 40. To help them develop their creative work, LVMH gives the winners a grant of 300,000 euros and a personalized technical and financial support from the Group for a 12-month period following the LVMH Prize award. This is no small thing, and like the Oscars, even being nominated is considered an honor – you are officially “one to watch” regardless if you are actually the winner. We’re thrilled that all 8 finalists have sustainability as part of their ethos whether explicit or not. Get them on your radar now!
