LVMH announces semi-finalists for young fashion designer prize

LVMH has announced the 20 semi-final candidates selected for its Young Fashion Designers Prize.

For the first time, along with votes from experts in the industry, the public will be allowed to cast their vote by a digital platform set up by LVMH where people can learn more about the designers, their collections, history, personalities and get a firsthand look inside their creative worlds.

With over 1,900 candidates worldwide, the top 20 young designers hail from around the world, spanning Colombia to Nigeria and Lebanon to South Korea, and represent a diverse range of cultures taking shape in the industry.

“The LVMH Prize will give the public the opportunity to discover the twenty semi-finalists on the lvmhprize.com website and to vote for the candidate of their choice. All the semi-finalists have incorporated a responsible stance in their creative vision: use of innovative or traditional materials, upcycling, recycled fibers, artisanal and local approaches,” stated Delphine Arnault, executive vice president of Louis Vuitton, in a release.

“These initiatives echo the shift in the fashion and luxury industries. Among the semi-finalists, seven do womenswear, five menswear, and two do both womenswear and menswear. Six of them design genderless collections.”

The winner of the LVMH Prize for Young Fashion Designers receives a 300,000 euro endowment and benefits from a one-year mentorship program provided by LVMH.

The Karl Lagerfeld/Special Jury Prize rewards a young designer with 150,000 euros and a mentorship program.

Additionally, LVMH distinguishes three young fashion-school graduates who have completed their studies in 2020 or 2021 by allocating them and their school a 10,000 euro grant.

Sportswear label Fila has unveiled a collaboration with birdwatching initiative Flock Together in the form of an apparel and footwear capsule, to be exclusively sold through LN-CC.

In a range of hike-wear gear made for urban exploring, the collection intends to bring people into nature and engage with their community. The selection includes a reinvented version of the Fila Trailblazer hiking shoe and two shearling fleece designs.

The colourways of the line are inspired by the Kingfisher bird, with a scannable near field communication (NFC) tag present in the hiking shoe that takes buyers to a dedicated page outlining the best places in the UK to spot a Kingfisher.

15 percent of all sales of the collection will go towards the Flock Together community fund.

Buying and creative director at LN-CC, Reece Crisp, expressed his enthusiasm over the collaboration in a release, stating: “We’re super excited for LN-CC to be part of this project.

“Flock Together encompasses everything that’s great about community and wellness, two driving forces that are integral to LN-CC too.

“Flock Together’s growth has been both a reaction to, and antidote from, a difficult eighteen months by bringing people together and encouraging outdoor consciousness, so we are honoured to share our platform in amplifying its much-needed positivity while working with Fila in creating this tribute to the Kingfisher.”

Flock Together, founded back in the 2020 covid-19 lockdowns, brings BIPOC together to engage in birdwatching and other nature-oriented activities.

It has previously partnered on an event with Timberland, hosting a range of spoken word presentations at the nature reserve, Woodbury Wetlands. Sponsored by the apparel label, the event aimed to promote the voices in its growing community adjacent to guiding guests through the nature reserve.
