The LVMH Prize just revealed the twenty finalists up for its prestigious award. Here’s what you need to know.
Given that previous participants of the LVMH Prize – one of fashion’s most revered competitions – have included the likes of Steven Stokey Daley, Simon Porte Jacquemus, and many (many) more, even just the nominees for this award are recognised as one to be watched. One, or more, of its twenty finalists could easily be next decision makers in fashion, so if you don’t know their names, get to know.
The twenty brands selected for the LVMH Prize 2024 span across eighteen countries, including Mexico, Moldova, and Togo apparently for the first time ever. Another new aspect of the group is that almost half of the brands selected are menswear focused, showcasing the immense growth in this category.
Below are the all twenty of the brands being featured. Make sure you familiarise yourself with them now; one of these designers will be running the fashion industry in a few years time.
