a unique resource
14,359 portfolios, 1,077 fashion items, 160 accessories, 118 pieces of jewellery and over 700 photographic works. A unique and ever-developing collection, an inexhaustible source of inspiration and communication for the most eclectic personalities in international fashion, design, art and culture.
ITS is a global network of incredible talents: students and teachers, designers and artists, trendsetters and communication experts.
A community connected by creativity that is constantly growing and evolving, like the branches of a tree that grow in different directions but draw nourishment from the same roots.
detector of creative phenomena
Like a seismograph, ITS records every creative vibration on a global scale. It logs changes and innovations to trace the evolution of contemporary fashion. We tirelessly collect raw data to identify the convergence of creative phenomena without any attempt to explain them, building a picture of how the surrounding environment profoundly influences today's young designers, enabling them to anticipate and predict future scenarios.
crossroads of all the talents
ITS is proud of its origins in Trieste, Friuli Venezia Giulia, Italy. A border city overlooking the sea, in the middle of Europe, it has always been a crossroads of people and populations. It makes an ideal vantage point because it lies outside the great design capitals, affording an objective view. An optimal perspective for a pure, free, unfiltered look at creativity. Trieste is increasingly becoming a local mecca for tourists, spearheading an economic revival linked to cultural and artistic initiatives with the potential to attract visitors and investments.
