TOMORROW, THE DESIGN
ModaLisboa opens applications for the Sangue Novo competition, with new awards and textile partnerships for Young Fashion Designers.
The latest edition of the Young Designers Competition was also a fertile ground for exploring the way of communicating Fashion, with two entirely digital presentations that opened doors to innovation, dialogue with multimedia cultural spheres and the intersection of aesthetic languages. And it was, in addition to all this, a reinforcement of the importance of creative young people for this industry, who challenge the instituted ways of thinking and creating Fashion.
It is to encourage these visions without addictions that we open a new season of the Sangue Novo competition, aimed to graduates of higher education and professional courses in Fashion Design, and young fashion designers recently graduated.
The jury, composed by Miguel Flor (president), Nelly Gonçalves (stylist) and Constança Entrudo (Fashion Designer) will select 10 projects to present in October 2021. After the presentation, the jury will announce the five finalists who will compete in the second and the last phase of the contest, in March 2022 - each of these young Designers will receive a monetary prize of 1000 euros for the development of the new collection.
But there are news. To support the participating Designers and to strengthen the relationship between creatives and the textile industry, Associação ModaLisboa established partnerships with Tintex Textiles, Calvelex / Fabrics4Fashion and Riopele, which provide selected Designers with materials for the production of their collections. And there is also another incentive: the winners of the ModaLisboa x Polimoda and ModaLisboa x Tintex Textiles Awards (announced in March 2022) will see their collections at the Showpress showroom - partner agency that supports emerging Fashion Designers - and have access to communication and PR tools.
