Beth was one of three recipients of the prize, which gives three fashion design graduates €10,000, as well as a job for a year within one of the LVMH companies. She will be joining Spanish luxury brand Loewe.
The award also gives the Fashion Design course a grant of €10,000, to acknowledge the excellence of the staff and teaching.
The winners were decided by an illustrious panel of judges, including Karl Lagerfeld (Fendi), Marc Jacobs (Marc Jacobs), Nicolas Ghesquière (Louis Vuitton), Phoebe Philo (Céline), Riccardo Tisci (Givenchy) and Delphine Arnault (Louis Vuitton).
Speaking about Beth’s success, Andrew Groves – Course Director for Fashion Design BA Honours – said: “with hundreds of graduates across the world entering this competition, it is an incredible testament to Beth’s talent for her to be awarded this prize for her graduate collection.
“While studying with us on the BA Fashion Design course she interned at Chloe in Paris, as well as Simone Rocha and Christopher Kane, so it is fantastic that she will now be working at Loewe and further developing her career in fashion. Winning this prize and chance to work with LVMH is an amazing opportunity for her, and we wish her every success in the future.”
