Creativity is Freedom: ModaLisboa presents Sangue Novo

We need ‘Sangue Novo’ like we need oxygen. New talent is as essential to a clear and unobtrusive vision as breathing is. We reopened the contest to the world and made it yearly. The call for young designers was sent to the main national, european and american fashion schools. Through online sharing, we received 82 applications from Portugal, Brazil, United Kingdom, France, Italy, Spain, Romania, Germany, Greece, the Netherlands, Belgium, and the United States of America.

 From the 59 Portuguese and 23 international portfolios that arrived at ModaLisboa offices, the jury composed by Miguel Flor (President), Lidija Kolovrat and Veronique Branquinho selected 10 finalists who, in the first phase, presented their collections: André Santos, Beatriz Julião, Cêlá, Feliciano, Ferencz Borbala (Romania), Filipe Cerejo, Flávia Brito (Brazil), Francisco Pereira, Inês Manuel Baptista and Louis Appelmans (Belgium). 

Adriano Batista and Danilo Venturi joined the judging panel and announce the six designers who will move on to the next phase of the contest: Cêlá, Filipe Cerejo, Flávia Brito, Francisco Pereira, Inês Manuel Baptista and Louis Appelmans.

Each finalist will receive a cash prize of 1000 euros and present a new collection in March 2020, when the jury will select the Sangue Novo winners.
