After having the public vote among the 20 semi-finalists, the 8th edition of the LVMH Prize has just announced the nine finalists of 2021, and not the usual eight finalists. This year, Bianca Saunders, Charles de Vilmorin, Christopher John Rogers, Conner Ives, Colm Dillane of KidSuper, Kika Vargas, Lukhanyo Mdingi, Nensi Dojaka, and Rui Zhou of Rui will move on to the final round of the Prize.

 

“This class of nine finalists is a wonderful snapshot of the fashion of today and tomorrow. These young designers are all talented, of course, but also committed and realistic. In this semi-final, each of them has shown in their own way a very personal and accomplished creative universe,” Delphine Arnault, executive vice president of Louis Vuitton and founder of the LVMH Prize, told Vogue. “A wonderful wave of optimism in a changing world.”

Bright colours, exuberant silhouettes and daring clothes: the new designers did not choose safety, and showed their talent while demonstrating that they do not feel limited by a digitalized world.

 “The quality of the semi-finalists was such that the expert committee could not decide between them. “The quality of the semi-finalists was such that the panel of experts could not decide between them.”

 

The first ever public vote for the prize, in which more than 32,000 people voted for their favourites among the 20 semi-finalists, helped convince the committee to increase the number of finalists as well.

 

24S, the LVMH-owned online retailer, will work with a selected group on a capsule collection, as will e-commerce site Ssense, which is participating in the award for the first time and plans to partner with some of the designers on exclusive pieces.

 

Pandemic permitting, the nine finalists will meet in Paris in September, with a jury to be announced soon. “We hope that the changing conditions will allow us all to meet in September at the Fondation Louis Vuitton. This meeting of the candidates and the jury is always a very powerful moment,” said Delphine Arnault. “For young designers, meeting with such a jury, made up of talents from the world’s leading fashion houses, is essential: the finalists of previous years all tell us how key this moment has proved to be for their career and their path.” 

 

Once in Paris, the jury will elect the overall winner and another special prize.
