About Sangue Novo

Of all the visions that we have of the world, the first is the most immaculate. It´s pure. It’s intense. It’s clean. The need that we have to restart several times throughout our lives is precisely here: in the letting go of luggage and letting go of addictions. We know that is in the beginning that freedom is and that freedom is where Fashion is. We also know that is in the beginning that the eyes are more open, that they absorb the colors and touches and the forms with thirst to grow. SANGUE NOVO is the beginning.

In the first phase of the competition, in October 2019, the world has met the five finalists - Cêlá, Filipe Cerejo, Flávia Brito, Francisco Pereira and Inês Manuel Baptista  - who received a monetary prize of 1000 euros and an applause from the jury that guaranteed their arrival in March. Here we met the three winners: Inês Manuel Baptista won the ModaLisboa Award in partnership with Polimoda; Francisco Pereira was distinguished with the ModaLisboa Award in partnership with Tintex; and Cêlá was the winner of The Feeting Room Award.
