VII. Edition Internacional Fashion Competition

Bilbao International Art & Fashion announces the VII Edition of its international fashion contest.

After a sixth edition that broke all participation records, the BIAAF international fashion contest returns in 2019 with its seventh edition. Aimed at emerging designers between 18 and 35 years old, it seeks to favor intercultural enrichment and the promotion of fashion as an authentic cultural asset, in close relationship with artistic values. The BIAAF international competition is biennial, and the registrations for this seventh edition will be open from October 1 to December 16, 2019, inclusive. The competition has two categories, clothing and accessories, and all the works submitted must provide added value to be inspired or directly related to the art world.

After registration and reception of work, the contest has two jury sessions:

1. A Jury chosen by Bilbao International Art & Fashion BIAAF will select a total of 30 finalists from among all participants in both categories.

2. In the second round, an international jury assembled by BIAAF for the occasion will select a winner from each category from among the 30 finalists.

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