FASHIONCLASH and ModaLisboa - Lisboa Fashion Week ModaLisboa created its 43rd edition around the theme of 'legacy' during an intense three days programme. From October 10 to 12 both established and emerging designers from Portugal where staged in Pátio da Galé to present their collection for summer 2015. Since last June, FASHIONCLASH and ModaLisboa signed official partnership. FASHIONCLASH teamed up with ModaLisboa as we share the same mission to support emerging talents. In particular FASHIONCLASH partners with Moda Lisboa's Sangue Novo (New Blood), a platform for emerging Portuguese designers. The idea is that each edition one FASHIONCLASH Festival designer gets selected to show in the October edition of ModaLisboa and FASHIONCLASH awards each season one designer from Sangue Novo with participation at FASHIONCLASH Festival.
Traditionally Sangue Novo show takes place during the opening night of ModaLisboa and this time 10 new designers where featured in Sangue Novo show. Among the selected designers for Sangue Novo at ModaLisboa Legacy edition, FASHIONCLASH Festival 2014 participant Andrea Lazzari of Plùs Que Ma Vie label has been chosen to show his collection within this collective show. Portuguese designer Catarina Oliveira, FASHIONCLASH Festival 2014 participant, was also one of the ten designers.
FASHIONCLASH had the honor to award Inês Duvale with FASHIONCLASH/ModaLisboa prize, the second designer will be selected in the March edition of ModaLisboa in 2015.
