The 22nd edition of the 080 Barcelona Fashion will take place from the 25th to the 29th of June 2018 at the Sant Pau Art Nouveau Site, which has been home to the event in the last occasions. Today the Generalitat of Catalonia has opened the registrations to take part in it, offering the possibility to brands and designers to present their collections within this setting that transforms Barcelona into the capital of fashion and the last trends.
.
The Generalitat, through its Trade, Craftamanship and Fashion Consortium (CCAM in its Catalan name) within the Business and Knowledge Department, organizes the 080 Barcelona Fashion with the aim of making Catalonia a benchmark of the generation and projection of Catalan design. It’s a mission that continues the heritage of fashion in Catalonia from its long textile tradition, which has contributed historically in the development of Catalonia. Currently the boost of fashion and design are dynamic elements for wealth and economic development. Hence the importance of organizing an event like the 080 Barcelona Fashion.
.
The open call to take part in the 22nd edition is aimed at emerging designers alongside fashion brands (that operate within Catalonia or Spain), international designers and brands and, as guests, established fashion companies that work in Catalonia and have walked in national or international runways. Moreover, the CCAM can invite designers and brands that stand out and share the philosophy of the Catalan catwalk.
.
They can all apply online through Canal Empresa until April 19th. The form can be downloaded in the same Canal Empresa website, this 080 Barcelona Fashion website, the CCAM site and the Business and Knowledge website.
.
 A committe of experts –chaired by the CCAM director- will select the participants among all the applications according to creativity, innovation and commercial requirements. The chosen designers and brands will opt to two awards this upcoming edition: the National Award to Emerging Design with 15,000 euro and the possibility to take part again in the next edition, and the National Award to the Best Collection, which will also allow the winner to be again on the 080 Barcelona Fashion to present a  new collection.
