ITS FASHION COMPETITION 2013
This is the core of International Talent Support. Throughout the years it has become an established and world-renowned competition.
In the beginning ITS was only a fashion competition, and fashion is still a big part of our DNA. It's also the starting point for the development of the other contest areas. We would have never got this far without the support of major brand DIESEL. They have been with ITS from the very beginning and give us tangible support, also through the assignment of the Diesel Award, an important prize for one of the fashion competition finalists.
Eyes on Talents, the online platform used by global design-led brands and publications to discover and connect with today's best talent, is pleased to present the Eyes On Talent Award. All ITS2013 finalists will be awarded a profile on the platform and one fashion finalist could be selected for the Eyes on Talents Award. The winner will receive €3,000 and featured profile communication to all Eyes on Talents member brands. Yoox.com, the world's leading virtual store for multi-brand fashion, design and art, is the Exclusive Online Retail Partner of ITS 2013 and will assign to one fashion finalist the yoox.com Award. yoox.com will offer to the winner special visibility, helping the designer to develop their brand and gain an international exposure through their ecommerce global windows available in more than 100 countries. Vogue Talents, the Vogue.it section dedicated to talents, published once a year as a supplement of Vogue Italia in September, is the media partner of ITS 2013 and will offer to an ITS FASHION finalist the Vogue Talents Award. The Award consists of the publication in Vogue Talents within 2013 of a photoshoot of the entire collection, with an interview to the winner. POPUPDESIGNGALLERY, an interactive window capturing the expressive language evolution of the contemporary designer, offers to the winner of the ITS 2013 Fashion Special Prize the possibility to freely showcase their work for one week with a set-up of strong visual impact. About 10-15 finalists will be selected to come to Trieste, Italy on 12-13 July 2013. ITS 2013 will be a showcase of the highest expressions of creativity from the world’s leading fashion schools.
