LVMH Prize 2022: These are the Finalists

French luxury fashion conglomerate LVMH announced the list of finalists for its 2022 LVMH prize today, supporting eight young fashion designers. Entering its 9th edition, fashion fans await the reveal with bated breath annually, as the list is always a strong indication of who will be the next big thing in the industry.

Since it was launched in 2014, the LVMH Prize has consistently identified creatives who eventually became the fashion and design industry’s major players. Previous nominees include Jacquemus, Simone Rocha, Julien Dossena of Paco Rabanne, and Demna Gvasalia of Balenciaga. And among the winners? We’ve seen Marques’Almeida, Grace Wales Bonner, and Marine Serre, but also more recently, stars of Feburary 2022’s London Fashion Week season Priya Ahluwalia, Nensi Dojaka and Supriya Lele.
