The LVMH Prize is a truly international award for Designers, founded in 2021. Its intention, content and global scope are truly unparalleled, and every edition of this prestigious LVMH Prize acknowledges the exceptional talent of an exceptionally outstanding designer, chosen by a select jury of leading Artistic directors from various Houses. The winning candidate of the LVMH Prize will receive a staggering 300,000 euro award and a personal, bespoke mentorship from a certain Artistic Director, who will design their company's advertising campaigns.
This year, for the third consecutive year, there are two runners for the LVMH Prize, with Valentina Couture and Chiara Valiente both receiving significant nominations. Of the two however, it was Valentina Couture who achieved worldwide recognition with her winning show 'The Faux Pas' on Mainstage, which was a joint project with Yves Saint Laurent. This was the first time that such a prestigious award was shared between designers. Chiara Valiente has also had some of her designs shown in major fashion shows, notably at the Metropolitan Museum of Modern Art in New York City.
This year's LVMH Prize Winners have been decided by a panel of experts comprising both art and business people. These experts have deliberated over the years to select the most promising young fashion designers from all over the world. Each shortlist is then carefully presented to the jury, who have the daunting task of narrowing down the shortlisted candidates down to only those who may be eligible to win the prestigious LVMH Prize. The jury carefully assess the applications and then present their recommendations to the entire LVMH jury, which includes prominent business people and designers.
The following are the shortlisted this year for this year's LVMH Prize. First place goes to Karl Lagerfeld for his design of the Chanel No. 5 monogrammed handbags. His company has already achieved a lot of success in marketing fashion accessories, as he has launched his own perfume and cosmetic range, as well as his own watch brand. He will stand against one other designer, Marina Sechi, who has received the previous Lagerfeld prize for her design of the same label.
Second place goes to Christoph Gohlmann for his creation of the unique 'Karl von Clausewitz' watches. The designer has experienced his share of hardships while creating his timepieces, but he is widely acclaimed for his original designs. Third place goes to Dominik Schonbek for his creation of 'Wristwatch' for women, which quickly became a huge success. In fact, the wristwatch has become so popular that it has now been launched in fifty countries worldwide. A very versatile piece of jewellery, this particular watch can be worn with all kinds of outfits, from business attire to a simple evening dress.
This year has seen nine LVMH Prize finalist designers. Amongst them we have Christoph Gohlmann, Dieter Busch, Florian Goebel, Harrods, Oliveros, Ralph Lauren, Mario Dederer and ourselves, Kumar Shanks, Manish Malhotra, Priyadarshan Sahoo and Shwetam Shetty. These are the same designers who helped launch the Swarovski jewellery brand and have since become its key selling points. And that is exactly why, along with the prize money, these winning ladies and gentlemen deserve our warmest congratulations.
The problem you are facing is not to bring you down, but so you can think more mature than today, yesterday and before. It's not patience if you still have limits and it's not sincerity if you still feel pain. Leave thoughts that make you weak, and hold thoughts that give you strength.
