MODALISBOA OASIS: SANGUE NOVO supported by SEASIDE

MODALISBOA OASIS: SANGUE NOVO supported by SEASIDE

Ten young designers who design what Fashion is today. SANGUE NOVO reaffirms its dedication to contemporaneity and, this time, returns with the support of SEASIDE. The international brand of Portuguese origin has managed, over its more than 30 years of history, to become an icon of the collective memory, and now takes on the mission of encouraging and leveraging a new generation of creatives. A news that means that there is now another Award for young Fashion Designers, to be delivered already in October.

The young Designers contest, designed to stimulate and empower creativity and production in Fashion, is the superior project in defense of transdisciplinary and experimentation of new paths, not only in Design but in business models. And these new projects, which are profoundly diverse, present themselves with a density of thought and aesthetic and conceptual references, making it obvious that a turning point has arrived. From themes that focus on identity and emotion, burnout and the imposter syndrome, an oppressive past for the queer community during the Estado Novo [the fascist dictatorship in Portugal from 1933 to 1974]  and a need to revalue society under the threat of an apocalyptic future, the ten collections arrive absolutely committed to sustainability, through upcycling techniques, an indelible focus on circular economy, and a careful choice of materials provided by the textile partnerships of Associação ModaLisboa — Calvelex/Fabrics4Fashion, Riopele and Tintex Textiles.

ABOUT SANGUE NOVO
Sangue Novo is the young designers competition of Lisboa Fashion Week. It works closely with all Fashion schools in the country to find and promote the work of young creatives, and is carried out in two phases: after the selection of candidates — in July — 10 young designers present their collections in October. Here, five finalists are selected, who will then compete for the final prizes in March of the following year. Throughout the process, the creatives receive follow-up and mentoring from the panel of judges, in order to better prepare them for the integration into the national Fashion industry.
