ITS 2019 will be remembered for the launch of our most daring project which we hope will help re-shape the entire concept of creating and sharing creativity in the fashion and design industry. ITS Arcademy is on its way, a formative, research space not just for professionals but for any curious experimenter, from the youngest to the oldest. When we meet again in 2020 it will be alive and we will experience it all together.
Right now is the time for us all to congratulate the ITS 2019 generation of talents who have excited us, given us emotions and passion, fueling new energy and ideas during the event.
Regardless who is flying back home with an award they are all winners and all part of the evergrowing network of the ITS FAMILY.
