Instead of leading in fashion education, Paris has historically dawdled behind its greatest rivals. Though that seems very likely to change, and quickly, thanks to a major new project launched in Paris with the IFM.
The luxury label owned by LVMH has doubled its leather goods production capacity in Tuscany with a new site in Radda in Chianti. The site, in which Celine invested over €20 million, is set to double its staff by 2021.

On Wednesday September 4, the sixth edition of the LVMH Prize for emerging fashion designers was awarded in Paris to South African designer Thebe Magugu, while the Karl Lagerfeld Prize went to Hed Mayner from Israel
LVMH has created a special new prize for young designers named after Karl Lagerfeld, whose own career was ignited by winning an award. The LVMH Prize's Special Prize will now be known as the Karl Lagerfeld Prize.
