At this stage, Juan's tutor asked him to participate in a design competition where he won the prize of the best collection. After this, a career full of acclaimed success and awards awaited.

This 2015, Juan obtain the National Fashion Award for the New Value in Spain, and the T of Telva for the best designer of the 2015 with Carolina Herrera and Isabel Marant.
Juan's collections are very much focused on the detailing, something that emerges from his fine art education/background (use of colour, volume, cut and concept). This is evident in Juan's embroidery and appliqué workmanship as well as other virtuous techniques. Evident are the classical references on the cut of Juan's pieces but he takes them further by reinterpreting them in a contemporary style. Vidal's woman is elegant and sophisticated, appreciates the small details, the craftsmanship and also the exclusivity.
