In the beginning ITS was only a fashion competition and fashion is still a big part of our DNA. It’s also the starting point for the development of the other contest areas. We would have never got this far without the support of major brand DIESEL. They have been with ITS from the very beginning and give us tangible support, also through the assignment of the Diesel Award, an important prize for one of the fashion competition finalists.

Vogue Talents the section dedicated to talents of the website Vogue.it, is the media partner of ITS 2012 and will offer to an ITS FASHION finalist the Vogue Talents Award consisting of a photo shoot of their entire collection by a Vogue.it photographer, to be published in September-October 2012 on the Vogue Talents website. Vogue Talents will also assign the winner a press office from July to December and interview him/her for the Vogue Talents website.

The weekly insert of the newspaper La Repubblica dealing with fashion, work, society and culture is the mediapartner of ITS 2012 and could assign to a fashion finalist the D-La Repubblica Award: the magazine will freely decide when and how to grant visibility to the winner.

About 10-15 finalists will be selected to come to Trieste, Italy on 13-14 July 2012 for a collective fashion show. ITS 2012 will be a showcase of the highest expressions of creativity from the world’s leading fashion schools.
