And the winner is? or Are? Marques’Almeida… That’s right the duo from London, Marta Marques and Paulo Almeida, are this year’s winners of the LVMH Prize announced today in Paris.
All the seven finalists had 10 minutes to present their projects to a jury’s panel of fashion most powerful designers like Nicolas Ghesquière, Marc Jacobs, Jonathan Anderson, Karl Lagerfeld, Humberto Leon and Carol Lim, Phoebe Philo, Raf Simons, and Riccardo Tisci.
Apart from the cash prize, the prize package also includes a yearlong mentorship from LVMH Group, financial guidance and access to the group’s production and distribution intel.
Like last year, another prize was awarded that included 50,000 euros as well as the mentorship, to the runner-up, the french designer Simon Porte Jacquemus of Jacquemus.
Major Congratulations to both.
