LVMH Prize to be awarded on September 7 in Paris
After an unusual 2020 impacted by Covid-19, the LVMH Prize 2021 is returning to normality. The award's organizers have announced that its final will take place on September 7, slipping in between Andam, which concluded in early July, and the Hyères Festival, which is scheduled for October.
The final of this eighth edition of the competition for young fashion designers promoted by the largest luxury company in the world will be held in Paris, at the Fondation Louis Vuitton. "This year, for the first time, the public will have the opportunity to go behind the scenes, discover highlights of the LVMH Prize final and learn about the finalists' journeys on our social networks," explained the luxury group in a release.
Last year's final was canceled due to the pandemic, and the prize of 300,000 euros was split equally between the eight 2020 finalists. This year, nine finalists have been selected: Bianca Saunders, who took home the Andam Prize earlier this year, Charles de Vilmorin, Christopher John Rogers, Conner Ives, Colm Dillane and his brand KidSuper, Kika Vargas, Lukhanyo Mdingi, Nensi Dojaka, and Rui Zhou with her label Rui.
On September 7, they will be judged by a panel, who will decide not only who claims the LVMH Prize 2021, but also this year's Karl Lagerfeld Special Jury Prize.
