Daily Tips: LVMH Predicts the Future of Fashion

What is the future of fashion? Ho can it survive in such an aggressive, commercially-driven contemporary world if it is still to retain its position as an art form? For LVMH, the most significant fashion colossus today, the secret apparently lies in supporting and nurturing young talent, giving them the financial and conceptual framework to develop their individual paths presumably without restrictions. Launched in 2013, the second edition of LVMH Prize for Young Fashion Designers has announced its eight finalists who will follow last year’s winner, Thomas Tait. The designers are Arthur Arbesser, Coperni, Craig Green, Faustine Steinmetz, Jacquemus, Marques’ Almeida, Off-White c/o Virgil Abloh and Vetements, names who are already fairly well known in the fashion world (one of the conditions in the application process is that candidates must have presented at least two collections and are under 40). Are these the names that will shape the future of fashion? The one who wins will undoubtedly be on good track to get there.
