The LVMH Prize Has Unveiled Its 2021 Finalists

London-based designer Bianca Saunders is among nine emerging talents who have been announced as finalists for this year’s

Following its first digital showroom and public vote — and a 2020 prize that was cancelled as a result of the pandemic — an exciting list was whittled down to 20 semi-finalists last month, before a proceeding vote narrowed it down to the final nine.

Joining Saunders in the last stage is Christopher John Rogers, Connaqer Ives, KidSuper’s Colm Dillane, Kika Vargas, Charles de Vilmorin, Lukhanyo Mdingi, Nensi Dojaka and Rui’s Rui Zhou.

“These young designers are all talented, of course, but also committed and realists,” said Delphine Arnault, executive VP of Louis Vuitton and LVMH Prize founder. “During this semi-final, each of them showed in their own way a very personal and accomplished creative universe”.

Marking an already incredible achievement, LVMH has also announced that both 24S and SSENSE will be working alongside a select group from the final nine on a unique capsule collection.

The final is set to take place in Paris later this year, with a jury also expected to be announced in the coming weeks.
