International Talent Support 2016

INTERNATIONAL TALENT SUPPORT 2016

  

ITS Artwork is a major contest category at International Talent Support (ITS), a visionary showcase for young designers. Based in Trieste, Italy, ITS invites emerging designer talent from around the world to compete in four areas: fashion, jewelry, accessories and artwork.

Swiss watchmaker Swatch created, in partnership with ITS, the ITS Artwork category, which focuses on pure artistic creativity. Ten finalists selected earlier this year were challenged by Swatch to make a work of art expressing their personal vision of artistic utopia, and to make use in their work of colorful Swatch components such as watch heads, straps, buckles, and dials.

Part fashion show, spontaneous performance and thrilling awards ceremony, this year's finale in Trieste was filled with excitement and creative vibes as the young designers presented their work and waited, nerves on edge, for the announcement of the winners. A vibrant live audience of international media, VIPs and prominent players in the creative arts gave enthusiastic applause to work that was unexpected, light-hearted and brilliant by turns. Carlo Giordanetti, Creative Director Swatch International, announced the winners.
