The LVMH Prize Announces Its Semifinalists for 2023, Including Luar, Magliano, and Namesake
The LVMH Prize has either helped to uncover or support many of today’s top designers and cultural influencers. Shayne Oliver of Hood By Air won a special prize back in 2014, and Jacquemus did the same the following year. Grace Wales Bonner won the grand prize in 2016, followed by Marine Serre the following year, and Nensi Dojaka in 2021. Other notable alumni include Colm Dillane of KidSuper, Peter Do, Chopova Lowena, and Hed Mayner. The LVMH Prize has just revealed its 22 global semifinalists for 2023, many of whom you’ve probably never heard of.
The purpose of the Prize, according to Delphine Arnault, CEO of Christian Dior, “was to help highlight tomorrow’s talents when we launched it.” “After the last 10 years, it has enabled hundreds, if not thousands of young designers to develop their creativity and careers.”
The public, in addition to experts like Law Roach and Gabriella Karefa-Johnson, will be able to learn about the designers and cast their votes for their favourite semifinalists this year since the Prize will once again be displayed online.
On March 2 and 3, there will be a physical showroom in Paris. Online voting will be open to the public from March 1 through March 5.
Meet the 2023 LVMH Prize semifinalists here until then.
