João Sousa
João Sousa was born on 10th June 2000, a holiday that celebrates an important Portuguese writer.
Maybe his birthday influenced his artistic side. In 2015, at the age of 15, João moves to Porto and starts his Fashion Design degree at Escola de Moda do Porto. Although he began his jorney knowing nothing about the fashion industry and, in only three years João grew up and learned everyday about enriching subjects. This learning experience gave him the opportunity to present his final collection, which was very appreciated by internal and external judges. He had the chance to participate in an internship at Denim Heavy Jeans and to develop some items for the FW18-19 and SS19 collection.

Fashion is a subject that João always enjoyed since his childhood, coming from a family that is linked to the areas of production, photography and event organization. The creative process is something that fascinates and transforms him, loving both to draw and to write. João had the opportunity to participate in several national competitions, such as Namorar Portugal and Vestido Chita. In 2017 he became one of the ten finalists of the Paulo Ribeiro International Competition by Pizarro and in 2018 won the Jovens Criadores PFN contest, which allowed him to present his first SS19 collection at the Bloom platform. In this year, João has become one of the 20 finalists of the Troficolor Denim contest.
