Parade of stars for the long night of the emerging talents of the world fashion industry
On the night of 3 March, in Paris, there was a traffic jam in LVMH headquarters, fashion icons and members of the jury such as Chiara Ferragni and Naomi Campbell; the Hadid sisters; the designers of the LVMH team including Maria Grazia Chiuri, Clare Waight Keller and Virgil Abloh; and Pose’s star, Indya Moore, who joined the crowd to greet the finalists of this year’s LVMH Prize. Finally the swarm of cameras that followed their every move was inevitable.
For me it is just as overwhelming and emotional, because I still feel like I felt last year. I’m just happy to be here, but more relaxed, “said London-based designer Rok Hwang, former winner” so many things have happened since then, but it’s so nice to see them all. I know exactly how they feel. ”
Even Indya Moore was excited: “Everything struck me. The basic passion and love are so intertwined in every fabric I’ve seen tonight, it’s unbelievable. It only hurts me to see how competitive it is, I just want everyone to win. It’s so beautiful; their passion makes me want to cry. I believe in each of them. ”
And swinging an egg-shaped Louis Vuitton monogram bag, he revealed he was hatching a couple of projects. “I’m the daughter of Louis and Nicolas [Ghesquière] is my father” he joked “I have some surprises in this egg, I can not wait for it to open.”
The Hadid sisters, surrounded by a security deployment of four men, continued to have fun all night long.
“We are really excited to hear everyone’s stories, because everyone comes from a different place, a different story. Being able to see who I am through clothes is really inspiring for us, “summed up Bella.
“When you start to hear stories – added Gigi – it is difficult not to invest emotionally. I worked in design and I understood the time, the heart and the thought process that affect each piece: it is important to listen to what they want to share “.
When asked how they saw the Paris collections so far, Gigi explained: “What I love about Paris is that designers are so effortless. They are simply iconic. They do their thing, and it’s so nice to come back. ”
As for the fact that they would be back for the LVMH Award ceremony in June, the girls gave divergent answers. “If we are invited,” jokes Gigi. “Wait, I need to go earlier this week, what day is it today?” Her sister kept joking.
