International Talent Support was launched in 2002 and during its 18-year history developed into the most highly recognised platform to showcase & support the strongest young talents on the planet. Most importantly, it created an ever growing network that supports creativity. In 18 years it has built an impressive CREATIVE ARCHIVE, a unique collection tracing the history of fashion evolution. Many of the over 580 finalists selected up to now occupy key positions in the most important fashion brands or have established themselves with their own lines.
Barbara Franchin is the founder and soul of ITS - International Talent Support.
She was born and raised in Trieste, a town with a privileged and decentralized point of view far from the established capitals of design, allowing an ideal perspective for a pure and unfiltered view, free from mainstream visions of the world.
In 2001 she launched EVE, a one-of-a-kind agency with a key strength: an eclectic, dedicated and passionate team.
The following year she launched the first edition of ITS, selecting the strongest young talents from all over the world and hosting them in Trieste for a grand final event with over 400 guests: journalists, trendsetters, opinion leaders and major representatives of the fashion system.
Her love and will to preserve, catalogue and display these unique expressions of creativity led to the creation of the ITS Creative Archive, a collection like no other which traces the history of contemporary fashion evolution. The Archive holds 18,000 portfolios, over 240 outfits, 125 accessories, 86 jewelry pieces and over 700 digital photography projects from over 80 countries.
EVE is the agency responsible for ITS, among other projects. It works on a worldwide level, it is creativity-oriented, it designs, creates and develops in-house concepts and projects blending creativity, professionalism, passion and emotion. Its activities include: concept design and art direction, event planning and production, graphic design, audio visuals, photo shooting, website design, talent contests, design and handling of collections and archives, recruitment and selection of human resources.
