The LVMH Prize is back for its fourth year, after hailing previous winners Grace Wales Bonner, Marques’Almeida, and Thomas Tait. Offering mentorship from industry giants and a €300,000 reward, the prize was created to honour and support young fashion designers around the world. The jury of judges includes names such as Marc Jacobs, Karl Lagerfeld and J.W Anderson, so to be selected is no small thing, and certainly has the potential to project winners to fashion super-stardom.
The shortlist for 2017 includes several British designers, including Dilara Findikoglu, Molly Goddard, Charles Jeffrey, Martine Rose and Richard Malone. The full list is as follows:
Cecilie Rosted Bahnsen
Alejandro Gómez Palomo
