The winner of 'FASHIONCLASH Festival' is João Oliveira who impressed with his collection 'Effeuiller' in which he plays with the relationship between sportswear aesthetics and the sportswear practicalability. This edition contained many fresh names as well few designers who already presented at Sangue Novo such as Carolina Machado who showed progress and maturity. Micaela Sapinho made her appearance with a statement collection about the role of women in the society.

In March this year he won this opportunity to develop his brand further. The collection 'Fado' (fado, meaning 'fate' in latin) inspired by Portuguese fado and hip hop balances the sportswear with traditional menswear sihouette. He imagines hip hop as a new fate for fado. He effortlessly clashes tradtion and future proving he is able to work out a complete collection that is both innovative and commercially vital.
