“This class of nine finalists is a wonderful snapshot of today’s and tomorrow’s fashion. These young designers are all talented, of course, but also committed and realists. During this semi-final, each of them showed 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.”
“To an exceptional year, an exceptional finale,” Arnault continued. “The quality of the semi-finalists was such that the committee of experts could not decide between them.” The prize’s first-ever public vote, in which over 32,000 people voted for their favorites among the 20 semi-finalists, helped convince the committee to grow the number of finalists, too.
