At the core of International Talent Support is ITS FASHION, which has developed to become an established and world-renowned competition.

ITS started out as a fashion competition and fashion is and always will be a big part of our DNA. Fashion is also at the core of the development of the other contest areas. It would have been much more difficult to arrive this far without the support of a major brand like DIESEL that joined us since the very beginning providing tangible support especially through the assignment of the Diesel Award, a life-changing experience 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 Talents Award. The winner could be chosen among the ITS FASHION finalists and will receive €3,000 and featured profile communication to all Eyes on Talents member brands.

The Italian Fashion Council is the non profit Association which disciplines, co-ordinates and promotes the development of Italian Fashion and will be very glad to offer the Camera Nazionale della Moda Award, a prize of €2,500 for the winner + a 6-month internship at Trussardi.

The Modateca Award will assign €3,000 to the most interesting knitwear collection and invite the winner for a visit of the unique Modateca Deanna Archive.

The SHOWstudio Prize will award the chosen fashion designer with the opportunity to create a SHOWstudio fashion film of their collection. The film will be developed in collaboration with the winner, and will be mentored from concept through to the final edit by Nick Knight and the SHOWstudio team. The film will be shot in London and will launch exclusively on SHOWstudio,com, within a tailor made project featuring written content and a contributor profile for the designer. In addition, the garments featured in the fashion film will be made available for sale in the SHOWstudio Shop.

Vogue Talents, the section dedicated to talents of the website and included once a year as a supplement of Vogue Italia in September, is back as media partner of ITS 2014 and will offer to an ITS FASHION finalist the Vogue Talents Award: the publication within 2014 on the Vogue Talents website of a photo shoot & interview, plus a feature in the September supplement.

The Finals of ITS 2014 will take place on 11-12 July. About 10-15 finalists will be selected to come to Trieste, Italy, for a showcase of the highest expressions of creativity from the world’s leading fashion schools.
