The fourth edition of the LVMH Prize has launched. Dedicated to young fashion designers around the world, this prize is one of the most prestigious, and launched the careers of Marta Marques & Paulo Almeida, Thomas Tait and Grace Wales Bonner.
Amongst the international committee of experts who will get the first look at all applications and eventually choose 10 finalists, is Polimoda’s own Advisor for Strategy and Vision, Linda Loppa. Then the jury, which includes the likes of J.W. Anderson, Phoebe Philo, Marc Jacobs and Karl Lagerfeld, will select the winners for the prizes.
Remember, there are two prizes available; one for designers and one for students who are graduating in 2017. Applications for the Designers Prize close on February 2nd. However, all 4th year students in Fashion Design at Polimoda are eligible for the Graduates Prize, and must enter before May 15th, 2017. Three winners will be selected and receive a €10,000 grant and an opportunity to work with the design team at a Group brand for one year.
Applications for the LVMH Prize 2017 are now open!
