Feb '16
The third edition of the LVMH Prize for Young Fashion Designers has received nearly 1,000 entries from more than 50 countries. This year, 23 talented young designers have been chosen as semi-finalists by the in-house selection committee, under the supervision of Delphine
Arnault, Executive Vice President of Louis Vuitton, the French multinational luxury goods conglomerate announced on its website.

Among the fashion designers selected for the third edition of the LVMH Prize, 6 are menswear designers, 7 design both women's and men's wear, and 10 are exclusively womenswear designers. In addition, two shortlisted candidates from the 2015 edition, Koché and Astrid Andersen have been selected again this year. The 23 designers hail from Japan, China, US, Canada, England, Finland, Germany and France, Malaysia and Iran.

“This is what defines the singularity of the LVMH Prize: it is the first fashion prize that is completely international and digital, and which can bring together in Paris individualities of such diverse, original stylistic expressions” said Delphine Arnault. “Men's fashions remain well represented and streetwear continues to make a statement without calling into question the high tradition of women's ready-to-wear. As a leader in the industry, it is the LVMH Group's responsibility to identify and help young designers grow.”

The 23 shortlisted designers will now be invited to meet LVMH's panel of 41 international fashion experts. Eight finalists will be selected on March 2 and March 3 in Paris. The Jury will award the third annual LVMH Prize for Young Fashion Designers on June 16 at the Fondation Louis Vuitton in Paris.

The Graduates' Prize will continue to accept submissions through May 15th, 2016, LVMH said. (SH)
