For the first time public can vote.

“This year, the public becomes an expert on the LVMH award” – that’s why the press release of major accolades promised this morning the announcement of 20 brands with an € 300,000 endowment (as well as one provided by a dedicated Membership of the year) LVMH team). In addition to consumers on who will go on to receive top honors, several new industry names have joined the committee of experts for discussions, including Bela Hadid and Vogue China’s new mining head, Margaret Zhang.

And whom shall we choose? An eclectic mix of creatives has been tapped this year, with many claiming a genderless approach to design. Christopher John Rogers – a New York-based talent who took home the CFDA / Vogue Fashion Fund Award in 2019 – is on the move, as does French designer Charles de Villamorin, Saul Nash of London and Shuting Qi of Shanghai.

This year’s LVMH prize also gives a node to know names like Cynthia Merhej, which designs under the brand Renaissance Rains and is based in Lebanon, and Coca Vargas, Bogota, Colombia. Lukhanyo Midingi’s name label has been created by Adeju Thompson of Cape Town and Nigeria for their line, Lagos Space Program. The semifinalists’ roundup, which also competes for the € 150,000 Karl Lagerfeld / Special Jury Prize and a mentorship program, was removed from the list of candidates from more than 110 countries.

2021 also saw the return of the award, as last year’s competition turned into the creation of a fund that would benefit a range of young fashion designers realizing the effects of the emerging epidemic (in 2019 the award Includes a final Montreal-based Lecvalier)).

The reason for the COVID-19 ban is given as to why it is 8Th The award version will run as a digital platform from April 6Th On 11 AprilTh, And the selection of semifinalists speaks to another major issue that affects the fashion world – sustainability. All of the competing brands have an ethos that manifests in the use of recycled / upcycled clothing, artisan craft techniques, and local production. A worthy lot, no matter who emerges as a winner.
