The next step for selected designers will be a meeting with forty five international experts from the fashion world in Paris on March 4th and 5th. The extensive panel of experts will then select eight finalists who will go forward to the next stage where they will present their collections to the competition’s Jury at the end of May.

The Jury will select a particularly remarkable designer for their talent. The winner receives a grant of 300,000 euros, as well as a personalized mentorship from a dedicated LVMH team in developing their company for a period of twelve months. This support includes all crucial areas of expertise that are critical to successfully building a nascent fashion brand (including advisement on intellectual property, sourcing, production and distribution, image and advertising, marketing).

In addition, the LVMH Prize also recognizes three recent fashion school graduates, offering them an opportunity to join the design team at an LVMH brand for one year and awarding them a 10 000 euro grant.

The Jury is composed of nine artistic directors from LVMH Maisons: Jonathan Anderson (Loewe), Nicolas Ghesquière (Louis Vuitton), Marc Jacobs (Marc Jacobs), Karl Lagerfeld (Fendi), Humberto Leon and Carol Lim (Kenzo), Phoebe Philo (Céline), Raf Simons (Dior), Riccardo Tisci (Givenchy); as well as: Delphine Arnault, Jean-Paul Claverie (advisor to Bernard Arnault and director of LVMH sponsorship), Pierre-Yves Roussel (chairman and chief executive officer of the LVMH fashion division).

The Graduate’s Prize will continue to accept applications until May 3rd 2015.

“It is the responsibility of the LVMH Group, as the leader of our industry, to identify and support young designers, and I am delighted that we can do so once again with so many talented candidates.”   Delphine Arnault
