The Cultural Association EVE - Creativity Research Lab created the Archive as the real home where creativity is generated, connecting what was created to what will be created, in an endless virtuous circle.
For two decades, thousands of young talents from all over the world have been sharing their creativity with us. Since the very beginning, we were aware of the profound meaning of what we received. We were not just dealing with projects, but with hundreds of different creative languages. We were holding seeds in our hands. Seeds of pure creativity, that we became responsible for preserving.
Each one describes the struggle to translate thoughts and emotions into something tangible, using images and photos - or any other tool (a poem, a story, a book...) that inspired the concept - samples of fabrics and materials, sketches, and technical drawings. Even if it is the source of life itself, a seed needs care, nurturing support, and protection to be able to grow strong and to bloom. This is the reason why ITS Creative Archive came to life. We could not have done it any other way: looking at a portfolio is like stepping into someone's dreams. It deserves the utmost respect.
The Archive is an open laboratory for the future of creativity, allowing a conversation between design, industry, and innovation. This idea from which it has grown, after 20 years, into a fully blown tree, constantly branching out to describe the infinite expressions of creativity. Our collection boasts 18,000 portfolios, over 325 outfits, 152 accessories, 103 jewelry pieces and over 700 digital photography projects, from 80 different countries.
