Just this morning the eight finalists for the 2020 LVMH Prize were officially announced ahead of the final taking place on June 5, 2020 at the Foundation Louis Vuitton in Paris. Last month, a group of 20 up-and-coming fashion brands presented their collections to a committee of experts for the semi finals. For the the seventh edition of the prize, a jury of returning and newly welcomed judges including Virgil Abloh, Rihanna, Marc Jacobs, and Clare Waight Keller, will join the expert committee to decide the 2020 winner of the LVMH Prize and the Karl Lagerfeld Prize.
Throughout the 25 years since LVMH’s founding, the houses within the luxury group have been driven by creativity, innovation, and heritage, while working to promote the careers of fresh talent in the fashion industry. For the first time, to further the careers of these young professionals worldwide, 24S and MatchesFashion will welcome the finalists of the LVMH Prize on each of their respective platforms to help them gain international exposure.
This year the foundation welcomes a diverse group of designers in both style and location. Five of the eight finalists will be presenting collections dedicated to womenswear, and the three others will show menswear. This group will also welcome their first-ever Bulgarian designer, as well as another designer from South Africa following the success of Thebe Magugu, the winner of the 2019 edition.
In regards to the artistry of this year’s finalists, the director and executive vice president of Louis Vuitton, Delphine Arnaultd commented, “This year, once more, the finalists impressed us with their creativity and commitment to creating clothes that are respectful to the environment. I would like to congratulate all of them!”
