Ambush, Atlein, Cecilie Bahnsen, Jahnkoy, Kozaburo, Marine Serre, Molly Goddard and Nabil Nayal are all names you need to know.

They are the eight finalists for the prestigious LVMH Prize for Young Fashion Designers. 

Earlier this month, 21 shortlisted designers showcased their collections at the LVMH headquarters to a group of ‘international fashion experts’. Those experts included Kendall Jenner and Karlie Kloss.

The finalists will now meet with the LVMH Prize Jury in June, which includes Marc Jacobs, Riccardo Tisci and Karl Lagerfeld. The selected winner will receive a year's mentorship from the luxury group and a handy €300,000.
