International Talent Support, the creative platform from EVE agency that finds and supports young creative talents from all over the world, is gearing up to its ITS 2012 final event, taking place in Trieste, Italy on July 13 and 14. Three finalists – Isabella Kuru and Isabel Vollrath for fashion and Volker Koch for accessories – are up for an array of cash prizes as well as professional opportunities and visibility and press for their work. 1,000 projects have been submitted across the Fashion, Accessories and Jewelry contest areas for the many judges to deliberate. Trends found in the submitted work will be collected by ITS in a Trend Report.

70% of the projects fall under womenswear with Alexander McQueen, Maison Martin Margiela and Balenciaga among the hopeful's favorite designers and Vogue the magazine of choice, followed by Dazed and Confused and i-D. Design trends included the use of white and black, green and blue tones, phoenix motifs and the use of crochet, metal, ropes and pearls as well as 3D techniques.

Diesel is the main partner and supporter of ITS Fashion and Accessories. Swarovski Elements has recently been named the main partner for Jewelry. Other new partners include Avery Dennison, Develon, D-la Repubblica and Il Piccolo. Each finalist will give an item from their work to the ITS Creative Archive, a protected talent reserve that currently holds 10,000 portfolios, 160 outfits, over 80 jewelry pieces and accessories and 630 photography projects.
