Grace Wales Bonner has secured her title as the next fashion prodigy by winning this year’s LVMH prize. The London designer has been a SLEEK favorite from the start and features in our current print issue, where she’s tipped to be one of the 50 people and ideas we’ll be talking about in the next decade.
Her brand, Wales Bonner, challenges the foundations of “ethnic fashion” and Otherness, presenting collections known especially for its Jamaican inspiration and beadwork. As the grand prize winner, Grace Wales Bonner will receive €300,000 and a chance to be mentored by LVMH. Congratulations!
