The 2018 edition of Bilbao International Art & Fashion Biennale highlights the work of 31 designers from 13 countries
On 17 June, Bilbao successfully concluded the 2018 edition of its International Art & Fashion (BIAAF), one of the most important international fashion and design contests in Europe. It has today become an international reference for emerging design and has hosted for its 2018 edition more than 1,600 participants coming from 90 different countries for showcasing their creations.
The BIAAF international competition represents a global platform for emerging talents of fashion design, and aspires to create an innovative breeding ground for creative fashion entrepreneurs in Bilbao. Throughout its several editions, the BIAAF has proven to be a key platform to identify local and international talents, to foster fashion business development and to promote design as a tool for sustainable economic development.
The 2018 edition inaugurated a special fashion exhibition, which displayed the work of the 31 finalists of the competition. Several young talents attended the biennale, represented by delegations of many international schools from Israel, Japan, UK, Belgium and Spain.
