After the prestigious LVMH Prize opened up for applications back in December, the full list of 20 nominees has now been announced. Some of the bigger names on the list include London-based designers Kiko Kostadinov and Paria Farzaneh, as well as New York’s Bode and sustainable label PHIPPS International.
The winner will follow in the footsteps of Wales Bonner, Jacquemus and Doublet’s Masayuki Ino, and will receive a €300,00 EUR (approx. $340,000 USD) prize as well as a year-long mentorship from a dedicated LVMH team. The LVMH Prize 2019 semi finals will take place on March 1 and 2, with a 62-strong panel of fashion experts — including Naomi Campbell, Sarah Andelman, Edward Enninful of British Vogue, 032c editor-in-chief Joerg Koch, and HYPEBEAST’s own Kevin Ma — set to select eight finalists. You can take a look at the full list of nominees below.
