More finalists include; Wales Bonner, by Grace Wales Bonner, an English designer from London and Y/Project, by Glenn Martens, a Belgian designer based in Paris.

“With 3 designers based in Paris in the final eight, the list reflects the vitality of the French fashion scene and the attractiveness of Paris for designers from all over the world” said Delphine Arnault, EVP at Louis Vuitton.
