One of the aims of the initiative is to foster and advance creativity and innovation within the fashion ecosystem by building momentum for fresh talent that is essential to the industry's vitality and is in line with LVMH's role as a leader in luxury.

In a statement on this year's finalists and semi-finalists LVMH’s Delphine Arnault noted: “The twenty semi-finalists are driven by an optimistic and innovative vision. They all place eco-responsibility at the heart of their creative approach with the use of recycled materials, upcycling, etc. They are also very keen on integrating a more ethical production system, while some place the spotlight on local and traditional know-how. The fluidity of womenswear and menswear is another key feature of this edition.”
