The Jury will choose among the finalists the winner of the LVMH Prize, the winner of the Karl Lagerfeld Prize and, for the first time, the winner of the Savoir-Faire Prize, a distinction that rewards excellence in craftsmanship, technical innovation and the sustainable approach of the brands selected. This year’s jury includes Jonathan Anderson, Maria Grazia Chiuri, Nicolas Ghesquière, Marc Jacobs, Kim Jones, Stella McCartney, Nigo, Phoebe Philo, Silvia Venturini Fendi and Pharrell Williams, as well as Delphine Arnault, Jean-Paul Claverie and Sidney Toledano.

Delphine Arnault declares:

“The semi-final of the 11th LVMH Prize highlighted the diversity and richness of the candidates’ creative approaches. The semi-finalists showed great expertise in terms of craftsmanship and a strong commitment to sustainability. The finalists’ designs range from entirely hand-made collections to eveningwear, and included upcycled designs.

Furthermore, two former semi-finalists of the Prize, Duran Lantink and Niccolò Pasqualetti, have reached the final.

I am very grateful to the Experts for their involvement in this event.

Finally, I’m delighted to welcome Phoebe Philo and Pharrell Williams to our remarkable Jury. The Jury and I will be joined by the eight shortlisted designers at the final on 10th September at the Louis Vuitton Foundation.”

Over the 25 years since the foundation of LVMH, the Houses in the Group have all been inspired by a passion for creativity and innovation while nourishing an exceptional heritage rooted in time-honored know-how.

As Bernard Arnault explains: “Innovation is more powerful when it springs from a preserved heritage.”

In métiers as diverse as fashion, jewelry, perfumes, leather goods, winemaking or watches, LVMH brands and designers stand apart in their quest for excellence, and their unique passion for innovation, invention and creativity.

Because both its roots and future are intimately linked to creativity, LVMH and its brands have always actively nourished creative talent. Creativity is one of the Group’s core values, guiding all its teams, from designers to noses to cellar masters. This engagement inspires all LVMH houses to actively support creativity in every form. For that reason, the Louis Vuitton Foundation for contemporary art opened to the public in October 2014 in a sumptuous building created by Frank Gehry, adding to LVMH’s lasting sponsorship of the arts.

Motivated by this “passion for creativity”, LVMH has for many years supported the world of fashion globally through corporate philanthropic initiatives, including:

  • the ANDAM Fashion Awards (Association Nationale de Développement des Arts de la Mode)
  • the Hyères International Fashion and Photography Festival
  • Central Saint Martins College of Art and Design in London
  • the investment fund for young designers created by the French Ministry of Culture and Communication.

This same passion has led the LVMH Group to launch the LVMH Prize for Young Fashion Designers.

This initiative helps drive the momentum and emergence of fresh talent that is essential to the vitality and diversity of the fashion ecosystem, a role that is perfectly in phase with the responsibilities of the world leader in luxury.
