The International Talent Support platform, created in 2002 by Barbara Franchin and the EVE team and today leader in supporting young talents in the fashion world, announces the 2020 edition of the #ITS creative contest #HEREWEBELONG.
"Here stands for here, now, today; We instead include our concept of group, family, bond, ideology intimately linked to the concept of Belong, which encompasses our philosophy of belonging to a real ITS Family. The concept belongs to us and we belong to the concept. We also wanted to represent an awareness of bond with nature, with the need to reason in terms of sustainability. Therefore, the leitmotif of the new edition will be the concept of Responsible Creativity".
Barbara Franchin - ITS founder
Inclusion, Sustainability, Responsibility: ITS addresses essential and urgent issues of our time.
All participating projects must be inspired by a reasoning of responsible creativity and will be evaluated by a jury of specialists, figures who represent the mosaic of the fashion system, including the Director of Fondazione Ferragamo Foundation and Museo Salvatore Ferragamo, Ms. Stefania Ricci.
Among the ITS awards of this year, conceived with the aim of accompanying the winners in their training and creative path beyond the event, there is for the first time ITS Fondazione Ferragamo Award promoted by Fondazione Ferragamo in the field of accessories, which will give the winning designer the sum of € 5,000 and the opportunity to carry out an internship in the creative departments of the Salvatore Ferragamo company.
There are over 600 candidates for the 2020 edition, from 63 countries around the world. At the end of the preselections, for the first time carried out entirely online, the finalists will be announced. They will take part in the big final event to be held in Trieste.
