“The semi-final of the tenth edition of the prize has highlighted a great maturity in the approach and work of the designers. Cultural diversity, celebration of traditional crafts and creative audacity define this selection. Naturally, the finalists are fully engaged in dealing with environmental issues and play with the boundaries between menswear and womenswear,” CEO Bernard Arnault said.

“Their expertise, their creativity, their uniqueness, and their commitment have truly impressed me. I would like to thank all the experts for their enthusiasm, their involvement, and the attention they dedicated to discovering and appraising the work of the designers who took part in the semi-final. The jury members and I look forward to seeing the nine shortlisted designers at the final at the Louis Vuitton Foundation.”

The finalists are expected to present their designs at the Louis Vuitton Foundation on June 7, 2023, when the winner of the LVMH Prize and the Karl Lagerfeld Prize will be chosen.

The winner of the LVMH Prize will be offered €300,000 in cash and mentorship by various LVMH teams. Meanwhile, the Karl Lagerfeld Prize winner will get €150,000 in cash and a year-long mentorship from LVMH teams.
