ModaLisboa continues to focus on the discovery and promotion of new talents in Fashion and the development of emerging author brands, through the Sangue Novo – Young Designers Competition. The applications for the next edition of the competition run until July 5, 2019.
We look for innovation, irreverence, creativity, new visions about fashion. We look for the talent and the singularity of new generations of designers.
Open to finalists of higher education degrees and professional courses in Fashion Design from Portuguese or international schools, and young fashion designers who have already finished their training and are currently starting their own brands, Sangue Novo will have two selection phases.
In a first phase, the jury - composed by Miguel Flor, Felipe Oliveira Baptista and Lidija Kolovrat - will select 10 projects to be presented at the Sangue Novo show in October 2019.
"The Sangue Novo lives on the energy and ambition of young designers with projects that highlight individuality, creativity, originality, quality, conceptuality and dress", says Miguel Flor, president of the jury.
In the October 2019 presentation, the jury will elect 6 finalist designers to present a new collection at the Sangue Novo show in March 2020. Each finalist will receive a monetary prize of 1000 euro.
In March 2020, the jury will elect the winners of the ModaLisboa Awards in partnership with Polimoda and with Tintex. The Fashionclash Festival and The Feeting Room awards will also be awarded.

”I am extremely glad that Polimoda is able to support emerging designers through its collaboration with Sangue Novo. Since fashion cannot exist without designers, it is vital to promote new talent. In addition, Sangue Novo takes place within the broader context of ModaLisboa, which for me is an essential arena providing a different point of view on fashion”,
