Lvmh Twelve Finalists For The Lvmh Prize For

LVMH: TWELVE FINALISTS FOR THE LVMH PRIZE FOR YOUNG DESIGNERS

Simone Rocha (see picture), Hood by Air and Thomas Tait are among twelve finalists for the LVMH Prize for Young Designers. This is pretty much like fashion’s answer to The X Factor. It’s got a fabulous panel of famous judges (Tim Blanks, Carine Roitfeld, Natalie Massanet and 39 other distinguished figures of that ilk), a grand prize (hello, €300,000) and of course a selection of talented contestants. Okay, so it’s a bit classier that since ‘LV’ and ‘MH’ translates to Louis Vuitton and Moët Hennessy but still. An initial crop of 1,200 applicants has been whittled down to this twelve which will be condensed to a further three by a jury that includes *gulp* Marc Jacobs, Karl Lagerfeld, Raf Simons and Riccardo Tisci. God help ’em. If only Dermot O’Leary was on hand to give a lil’ love and support. For the full shortlist click here.
