The BIAAF International Fashion Design Contest aims to discover local and international
talent to guide, support and launch it out directly from our own region to the market.
BIAAF leads a pioneering project based in Bilbao/Bizkaia with a clear international vocation,
supported by prestigious companies, universities and institutions connected to fashion
design, understood as an engine of economic, educational and social development.
Endorsed by a network of highly regarded professional contacts, BIAAF generates
sustainable business development opportunities through its initiatives, which have a direct
impact on the industrial and educational areas.

Prominent international universities, business schools, fashion design institutions, museums,
business firms, broadcasting media, technology and research centres, as well as other
entities related with the fashion industry, are part of this project led by BIAAF. All of them
share the same goals: to develop youth talent, establish business networks and create
quality employment.
