LVMH has announced the eight finalists for its Prize for Young Designers 2020, shortlisting the likes of Priya Ahluwalia‘s eponymous label Ahluwalia and Casablanca.

The eight finalists were chosen following their semi-finalist round at the LVMH Group headquarters, in which they had to participate in a showroom experience that was judged by the Prize’s 68 experts. Today, LVMH announces the list of eight finalist nominees, which include the aforementioned designers above alongside Emma Chopova and Laura Lowena’s womenswear label Chopova Lowena; menswear designer Nicholas Daley; Peter Do; Sindiso Khumalo; Supriya Lele and Tomotoka Koizumi’s Tokyo-based label Tomo Koizumi.

Delphine Arnault, director and executive vice president of LVMH Group said in a press release,  “This year, once more, the semi-finalists impressed us with their creativity and their commitment to creating clothes that are respectful of the environment. I would like to congratulate all of them.”

A judging panel consisting of Jonathan Anderson, Kris Van Assche, Nicolas Ghesquière, Maria Grazia Chiuri, Marc Jacobs, Clare Waight Keller, Sidney Toledano, Jean-Paul Claverie and Delphine Arnault will be joined by former Prize finalist Virgil Abloh, as well as Rihanna and Stella McCartney. Together, they will crown the winner of the LVMH Prize for Young Designers 2020, with a prize that includes being stocked on 24S and MatchesFashion, as well as €300,000 EUR (approximately $325,000 USD) and a yearlong bespoke mentorship program from a dedicated LVMH team.

Furthermore, one other promising designer will be the recipient of the Karl Lagerfeld Prize, awarding them €150,000 EUR (approximately $162,000 USD) and a more concise one-year mentorship. The final is set to take place at Fondation Louis Vuitton on June 5, 2020.
