The young Fashion Designers' competition is open to designers from every country who have produced at least two collections and who are under 40. To help them develop their creative work, LVMH gives the winners a grant of 300,000 euros and a personalized technical and financial support from the Group for a 12-month period following the LVMH Prize award. This support covers all the areas of expertise that are critical to a young fashion brand (intellectual property, sourcing, production and distribution, image and advertising, marketing etc.)
