With this edition of the SANGUE NOVO – Young Designers Competition, ModaLisboa will showcase some of the most promising national fashion designers, shining a light on emerging brands.

Then, the jury will elect 5 designers to present a new collection at the Sangue Novo show in March 2021. Each finalist will receive a monetary prize of 1000 euros for the development of this new collection. After special evalution of the collections developed by the 5 finalists, the jury will elect the chosen designer for the ModaLisboa Award in partnership with Polimoda.

SANGUE NOVO is open to Portuguese finalists of higher education degrees and professional courses in fashion design as well as young fashion designers who have already completed their training and have started working on their own brands.
