Friday evening, the 43 edition of ModaLisboa – Lisboa Fashion Week Legacy edition opened with Sangue Novo show. Sangue Novo (meaning: New Blood) is a platform for emerging Portuguese designers.
Among ten selected designers FASHIONCLASH Festival 2014 participant Andrea Lazzari of Plùs Que Ma Vie label has been chosen to show his collection within this collective show. On behalf of FASHIONCLASH I had to choose one designer and give out FASHIONCLASH / ModaLisboa award, namely award the designer with participation at FASHIONCLASH Festival 2015.
First I met all designers backstage and got a closer look to their work. Following the runway presentation I had the challenge to choose just one designer out of a severe selection of nine promising designers.
Sangue Novo is a very fertile opportunity for new designers in Portugal and one of the highlights of ModaLisboa. Sangue Novo / ModaLisboa SS2015 participants: Olga Noronha, Catarina Oliveira, Banda, Rua 148, Inês Duvale, Juliana Cunha, Nair Xavier, Cristina Real, Plùs Que Ma Vìe by Andrea Lazzari and Joaquim Correia.
