In light of the present situation, ITS represents a model for renewing hope in the future of fashion and beyond, through creativity and beauty. Young talents must be protected and supported, now more than ever, and it’s vitally important to act together: for this reason illycaffè is alongside ITS and ITS project, which is completely dedicated to assist them. Since 2002, ITS has been shining a spotlight on talented new designers, offering them a unique opportunity to get in touch with the most prestigious fashion experts and companies, while transforming Trieste into a privileged observatory for new, emerging trends. Through fashion, designers are able to have a genuine impact on society, culture and environment. The themes of sustainability and inclusivity are today major opportunities, as they provide young designers with additional motivation, and this stimulates creativity. With this understanding the role of ITS Arcademy is even more important and will be a source of knowledge, passion and experience for the innovators and for the next generation.
