CREATE! The best is yet to come

After a challenging 7th edition, BIAAF launches the 8th edition of its international fashion design contest aimed at young creatives aged between 18 and 35.

Adapting means being bold enough, in spite of everything, to pursue change, invent a model that better respects natural resources and reaffirm one of the most precious values: CREATIVITY.

After registration and works reception, the contest shall hold two jury sessions:

  1. A Jury chosen by Bilbao International Art & Fashion BIAAF will select a total of 30 finalists among all participants in both categories.
  2. In a second round, an international jury appointed by BIAAF for the occasion will select the winner of each category among the 30 finalists.

You can find more information in the Contest section of our website and in our social media.
