S.S. Daley, a British designer based in London, founder of the womenswear and menswear brand S.S Daley, won the 2022 edition of the Lvmh Prize for Young Designers. The final of the ninth edition of the Lvmh Prize for Young Fashion Designers, presente by Australian actress Cate Blanchett, took place on June 2, 2022, at the Louis Vuitton Foundation, in the presence of seven artistic directors of Houses of the Lvmh Group: Jonathan Anderson, Maria Grazia Chiuri, Nicolas Ghesquière, Kim Jones, Stella McCartney, Nigo et Silvia Venturini Fendi, as well as Delphine Arnault, Jean-Paul Claverie and Sidney Toledano.
S.S. Daley will receive a 300,000 euro endowment and will be mentored for one year by a team of Lvmh experts.

Olympic gold medallist Eileen Gu presented the Karl Lagerfeld Special Jury Prize, which went to Eli Russell Linnetz, an American designer based in Venice Beach, founder of the womenswear, menswear and genderless brand ERL, and to Idris Balogun, an American designer based in New York, founder of the menswear brand Winnie New York. The two designers will each receive 150,000 euros and a year of mentorship.

Delphine Arnault, the executive vice president of Louis Vuitton, said "Steven Stokey Daley appropriates the codes of tailoring by playing with the clichés of upper-class English culture."

Other finalists for the Prize included Ashlyn by Ashlyn Park, Knwls by Charlotte Knowles and Alexandre Arsenault, Roisin Pierce by Roísín Pierce, Ryunosukeokazaki by Ryunosuke Okazaki, and Tokyo James by Iniye Tokyo James.
