Showcase is a digitally treated non-dialogue documentary film about the YKK
Accessory Award at ITS#SIX in Trieste. Italy
International Talent Support (ITS) is an annual competition for young
creatives in the fields of Fashion, Accessories and Photography, selected by
an international jury of fashion industry professionals.
The Accessory Award competition is held in partnership with YKK, and 13
young accessory designers of 8 different nationalities were selected from 9
international schools to take part. They were asked to design an accessory
completely focused on the creative and original use of YKK fastenings. Their
accessory designs had to combine functional meaning with an element of
beauty, using a YKK fastening system in an original, creative and
technically advanced way. The finalists’ work was showcased at an awards
ceremony in Trieste.
Filmed on location in Trieste, the narrative begins with the jury viewing
the finalist’s work, and progresses to an evening event where these
beautiful and extraordinary accessories are presented to a specially invited
audience. The treatment focuses on these momentary encounters through a
series of overlaid and fragmented sequences played out across the glass
surface of the showcase in which the accessories are displayed. The
resulting film is a reflected and refracted portrait of the designers, jury
and audience set against the forms and textures of the still life beneath.
