Supermodel Natalia Vodianova, Net-a-Porter founder Natalie Massenet, fashion photographers Patrick Demarchelier and Juergen Teller, fashion bloggers Chiara Ferragni and Susie Lau, and ELLE France journalist Sylvia Jorif are among the 45 experts who have been selected by LVMH to create a shortlist of young designers, who will be in the running to win the LVMH Prize.

The panel will meet a group of preselected applicants at the upcoming Paris Fashion Week to review the submitted collections before voting for the shortlist.

The shortlisted applicants will later have their work evaluated by a jury of nine creative directors from LVMH labels. They include J.W. Anderson (Loewe), Nicolas Ghesquière (Louis Vuitton), Marc Jacobs (Marc Jacobs), Karl Lagerfeld (Fendi), Humberto Leon and Carol Lim (Kenzo), Phoebe Philo (Céline), Raf Simons (Dior) and Riccardo Tisci (Givenchy).

Open to designers under the age of 40, the LVMH Prize grants €300,000 to the winner, whose brand development will be aided by a team from the French fashion conglomerate for a year. Of the many other applicants, three who have completed a fashion design programme in university will be chosen for a €10,000 prize each and given an opportunity to join the design team at an LVMH label for a year.

All applications are to be made at www.lvmhprize.com by 8 February 2015. Winners will be announced in May 2015.
