Meet the Asian Fashion Designers Shortlisted for the 2022 LVMH Prize

Winning the LVMH Prize is one of the most enviable badges of honour that an emerging fashion designer can wear.

The prestigious prize is offered by French luxury conglomerate LVMH—which owns big brands like Dior, Fendi, and of course, Louis Vuitton—and has helped launch the careers of some of the fashion industry’s most exciting names today. That includes Grace Wales Bonner, Simon Porte Jacquemus, Marine Serre and, as of last year, Nensi Dojaka. In 2022, an Asian designer may be added to that list.

That possibility is posed by the list of finalists that been revealed for this year’s LVMH Prize. It comprises eight fashion labels from around the world: Ashlyn from South Korea, ERL from the US, Knwls from the UK, Róisín Pierce from Ireland, Ryunosukeokazaki from Japan, S.S. Daley from the UK, Tokyo James from Nigeria, and Winnie from the US.
