The LVMH Prize Shortlist Is Here

Today LVMH announced the 2020 semi-finalists and judges for fashion’s most prestigious accolade — the eponymous LVMH Prize for Young Fashion Designers, which not only bestows the winner with a year-long money-can’t-buy mentorship (as well as an eye-watering 300,000 euros) but catapults them (and often those shortlisted) into a frenzied fashion superstardom. From an overwhelming 1,700 applications from designers of 110 different nationalities, just 20 have made the cut for the semi-finals.
