SANGUE NOVO

Young Designers Competition

Sangue Novo – Young Designers Competition is a platform showcasing the ideas and works of young fashion designers, including finalists of the fashion courses in Portuguese and international schools, with an important reach in Europe. Its genesis is the creativity and the exploration of new concepts and new directions for Fashion. Sangue Novo final result is a Fashion Show integrated in the official calendar of Lisbon Fashion Week, presenting the work of the finalists to press and to the public.

The competition is annual with two selection phases. The applications run between May and June of each year. In a first phase, the jury selects 10 projects to be presented at the Sangue Novo fashion show at ModaLisboa – Lisboa Fashion Week, in October.

At the October presentation, the jury elects 5 finalist designers to present a new collection at the Sangue Novo show, in March of the following year. Each finalist receives a monetary prize of 1000 euros for the development of the new collection.

"Sangue Novo - Young Designers Competition" lives on the energy and ambition of young designers with projects that highlight individuality, creativity, originality, quality, conceptuality and wearability."
MIGUEL FLOR (President of the Jury)
ModaLisboa
"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."
