Launched in November 2013, the LVMH Prize was created to honour and support young fashion designers around the world. Every year, a young designer and three graduates from fashion schools can claim the prestigious prize.
The young fashion designer prize
The young fashion designers' competition is open to designers from every country who have produced at least two collections and who are under 40. To help them develop their creative work, LVMH gives the winners a grant of 300,000 euros and a personalized technical and financial support from the Group for a 12-month period following the LVMH Prize award. This support covers all the areas of expertise that are critical to a young fashion brand (intellectual property, sourcing, production and distribution, image and advertising, marketing etc.)
The deadline for subscription is 4 February. All information can be found here.
The graduates prize
The graduates prize is open to students of fashion schools who are completing a degree course at a fashion school in 2017-2018. The three winners and their school, receive a 10,000 euros grant and an opportunity to work as part of the design team at an LVMH brand for one year.
