LVMH CELEBRATES 25 YEARS OF PROMOTING YOUNG FASHION DESIGNERS
Over the 25 years since the creation of LVMH, the Group’s Maisons have all been driven by a passion for creativity and innovation while nurturing an exceptional heritage rooted in centuries-old know-how. As Bernard Arnault explains: “Innovation is more powerful when it emanates from a preserved heritage.
In professions as diverse as fashion, jewellery, perfumery, leather goods, oenology or watchmaking, the brands and designers of LVMH are distinguished by their quest for excellence and their unique passion for innovation, invention and creativity.
Because its roots and its future are intimately linked to creativity, LVMH and its brands have always actively nurtured creative talents. Creativity is one of the Group’s core values, guiding all its teams, from designers to noses to cellar masters. This commitment inspires all LVMH companies to actively support creativity in all its forms. This is why the Louis Vuitton Foundation for Contemporary Art opened its doors to the public in October 2014 in a sumptuous building created by Frank Gehry, as part of LVMH’s long-term artistic patronage.
Motivated by this “passion for creativity”, LVMH has for many years supported the world of fashion around the world through corporate philanthropic initiatives, in particular:
- the ANDAM Fashion Awards (National Association for the Development of Fashion Arts)
- the Hyères International Fashion and Photography Festival
- Central Saint Martins College of Art and Design in London
- the investment fund for young creators created by the Ministry of Culture and Communication.
This same passion led the LVMH Group to launch the LVMH Prize for Young Fashion Designers. This initiative makes it possible to stimulate the dynamics and the emergence of new talents essential to the vitality and diversity of the fashion ecosystem, a role perfectly in line with the responsibilities of the world leader in luxury.
