The LVMH Prize for Young Fashion Designers has revealed their shortlist of 21 designers.

The list will first be reduced to 8 finalists and then the winner of the 300,000-euro prize will be announced on June 16. In the 21 designers, 14 countries are represented, 9 design womenswear, 10 menswear and 2 do both.

LVMH Prize founder and executive vice president of Louis Vuitton Delphine Arnault said:

“This year, two distinct characteristics stand out among the propositions of the candidates. First, streetwear in various forms influences many collections; and second, the gender diversity of the designs is emblematic of this edition. Boldness is the keyword of the creations of these 21 young designers.”

We can’t wait to see who makes the cut!
