Last October, a jury of esteemed fashion professionals including Adriano Baptista, Veronique Branquinho, Miguel Flor, Lidija Kolovrat and Polimoda’s Director Danilo Venturi selected 5 designers to participate in the upcoming finals of SANGUE NOVO – Young Designers Competition, a design contest offering one of the top talents the opportunity to attend a Polimoda Master. To develop their new collections, each finalist was awarded with a monetary prize of 1000 euro.
On March 6th, the designers will finally present their collections at Lisboa Fashion Week! The top talent will be awarded the ModaLisboa Award in partnership with Polimoda, consisting of a Polimoda Master in Fashion Design or a Polimoda Master in Collection Design worth €28.000 and a €3.500 euro living expenses grant.
ModaLisboa’s aspiration for the Sangue Novo – Young Designers Competition is innovative irreverence, with the objective of scoping out fresh young talent unafraid of inspecting new creative visions about fashion.
Good luck to the finalists!
