For 20 young French and international designers, these last two days have been filled with stress and excitement. These are the designers shortlisted for the fifth edition of the LVMH Prize. Once again, the Prize has selected a fine array of fresh talents (Faustine Steinmetz, Eckhaus Latta, Charles Jeffrey, GMBH, Ludovic de Saint Sernin, to name but a few). There is no doubt that they will follow in previous winner Marine Serre’s footsteps. Remember Rihanna giving her her award last year? These last few days of Fashion Week, Instagram had eyes for the award ceremony to come. This was all the more the case last night for the opening cocktail of the showroom during which the jury (Nicolas Ghesquière, Maria Grazia Chiuri, Clare Waight Keller, Marc Jacobs, Karl Lagerfeld to name but a few) will take on the heavy task of choosing its champion. Quite the event of this year’s edition was the participation of top model Bella Hadid (who, as as seen on the @lvmhprize feed, takes her role quite seriously). And let’s not forget about Anna Wintour who paid a visit to each and every contestant to discover their collections. To say this is a dream come true for them would be an understatement.
