International Talent Support is a platform for creative minds, now in its fourteenth edition. It was created to offer visibility, support and a voice to young talents from every corner of the earth, and continues to do so. It gives young designers the chance to set their creativity free through financial opportunities, work placements and the chance to have their work shown to a jury made up of real experts.
ITS provides real opportunities and represents a bridge between young designers and the fashion industry. All of the work placements, internships and special projects granted to the finalists after the event prove it.  Furthermore, we collaborate regularly for work placements with several brands like Diesel, Antonio Marras, MaxMara, Armani and Viktor & Rolf, to mention but a few. Major industry players also offer their support.
