Three alumni from Beckmans nominated for the LVMH Prize
Alumni from Beckmans College of Design have for the first time been nominated for the prestigious LVMH Prize, Young Fashion Designers Award for their brands.
Rave Review and Samuel Gui Yang
One of the brands, Rave Review was founded by Josephine Bergqvist and Livia Schück who met at the Fashion program which they graduated from in 2016. Their brand Rave Review was launched the following year combining remake and upcycling with high-end fashion. The brand has presented their collections in Paris and Stockholm and recently in Copenhagen.
The second brand is the London-based fashion brand Samuel Guì Yang founded by Erik Litzén, who graduated from the Fashion program in 2012, together with Samuel Yang.
