Born to Create
Launched in Trieste in 2002, ITS Contest is one of the world’s leading platforms for emerging creative talent.
Participation is open to Fashion, Accessories and Jewellery designers. Finalists are selected by an international Jury composed of fashion industry leaders, artists, stylists, photographers and editors. They benefit from global media exposure, professional opportunities and mentoring, as well as financial awards.
Creative and artistic directors such as Demna, Matthieu Blazy, Nicolas di Felice, Richard Quinn, milliners Justin Smith and Maiko Takeda and glove maker Thomasine Barnekow are just some of the competition’s 670 alumni.
Established in 2022, Fondazione ITS (International Talent Support) is based in Trieste, Italy but international in scope.
Our mission is to protect, preserve and promote creativity.
We do so through ITS Arcademy - Museum of Art in Fashion and international fashion competition ITS Contest.
We scout and develop talent and create events, exhibitions and projects at the intersection of fashion, art and culture.
