Just a couple of months ago we were gearing up for the LVMH Prize competition to begin, and now we have our 12 finalists! Originally, the judging panel was only going to select 10, so they must have been impressed with the options. We see some familiar faces – Tim Coppens (also recently in the running for the CFDA/Vogue Fashion Fund), Simone Rocha, Suno by Max Osterweis and Erin Beatty, and Shayne Oliver’s Hood by Air to name a few – as well as newer ones. The last entrant standing will win €300,000, though arguably, the more valuable award will be a mentorship with some of LVMH’s biggest names. Let’s get better acquainted with the line-up! Here are the looks each designer submitted to the panel. The winner is set to be announced on May 28th, but let us know now – who do you think will take home the grand prize?
