INTERNATIONAL TALENTS SUPPORT 2020
HERE WE BELONG – SEARCHING FOR RESPONSIBLE CREATIVITY
The International Talent Support platform, created in 2002 by Barbara Franchin and the EVE team and today a leader in supporting young talents in the fashion world, launches #HEREWEBELONG, the 2020 edition of the ITS creative contest.
Inclusion, Sustainability, Responsibility: ITS addresses essential and urgent issues of our time.
All the 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 Museo Salvatore Ferragamo Foundation and Fondazione Ferragamo, Stefania Ricci.
Novelty of his year is the Fondazione Ferragamo Award, promoted by Fondazione Ferragamo with the aim of supporting the winner of the accessorizes section in his training and creative path even beyond the event. The Foundations will donate the sum of € 5,000 to the winning designer 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. The finalists will be announced after the preselections, for the first time carried out entirely online. They will take part in the great final awards ceremony, in Trieste.
“Here stands for now, today; We, on the other hand, encompasses our whole concept of group, family, bond, ideology intimately linked to the concept of Belong, which contains 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 a new awareness and connection with nature, and the need to think about sustainability. So, the leitmotif of the new edition will be the concept of Responsible Creativity"
