Modafad is a fashion association based in Barcelona, which helps local designers to promote and publicize their work in the fashion world. It collaborates with young talents, international design schools, specialized media and the industry. The goal is to find the best emerging fashion designers.
Therefore, it plays an important part of the 080 Barcelona Fashion Week. Young designers have the opportunity to present their collections in front of the press and in front of a panel of international experts from the fashion industry. The winner of the Modafad Fashion Award has the opportunity to present his collection at the Fashion Week in Madrid.
At this year’s 15th bi-annual 080 Barcelona Fashion Show Modafad picked three young designers Pedro Covelo (winner of the last edition of the MODAFAD Fashion Awards), Martín Maldonado (Finalist Modafad Fashion Awards 2014) and Yoseline Martinez (Winner of the Aguascalientes Fashion Contest 2014) to present their collection for the first time.
I was really looking forward to the event to see what the young local talents had to offer and I have to say that all three of them were absolutely amazing! The young designer Pedro Covelo could convince the jury with his new collection again and received the MODAFAD Fashion Award.
