The 8th edition of the LVMH Prize for Young Fashion Designers announced the 2021 final will take place Sept. 7, 2021 at the Louis Vuitton Foundation in Paris.

Last year the 7th edition final was canceled due to the COVID-19 pandemic, and the  €300,000 prize was divided among the eight finalists.

On Sept. 7, the jury will decide between the nine finalists and award the 2021 LVMH Prize and the Karl Lagerfeld Special Jury Prize. The Karl Lagerfeld Special Jury Prize was created as a tribute to the late designer, Karl Lagerfeld, who passed away in February 2019.
