Started in 2013 by the French luxury conglomerate, the LVMH prize is an annual platform that helps launch upcoming talent on a global scale. The competition invites designers under 40 from all over the world, who have produced at least two women’s wear, men’s wear or unisex collections. This year’s winner will be finalised from the shortlist of 20 semi-finalists announced earlier this month.
