Behind the Scenes at the LVMH Prize
In mid-March, LVMH announced the eight finalists for the third edition of the LVMH Prize for emerging designers. Now, three months later, the winners have finally emerged: Grace Wales Bonner and Vejas Kruszewski, designers of eponymous labels Wales Bonner and Vejas, were revealed as the grand prize and special prize winners of the 2016 awards. They came out on top of a crop of finalists that also included Brandon Maxwell, Facetasm, Aalto, and Y/Project — the prizegiving was an all-day affair that involved presentations in front of guests like Nicolas Ghesquière and Karl Lagerfeld, and a ceremony during which Louis Vuitton favorite Léa Seydoux presented the the grand prize. Throughout the proceedings, Ghesquière, Seydoux, the LVMH team, and many of the designers documented the whole experience on Instagram, and we've rounded up a few of the best, here.
