Hadar Slassi wins at the international ITS Contest
ITS Contest is an international competition in Italy that seeks to discover and promote young talents in the fields of Jewelry, fashion and accessories all over the world. Hadar Slassi, who graduated from the Department of Jewelry and Fashion in 2019, won in two categories, having been selected out of 560 applications from 60 countries and over 80 schools.
In the category "ITS Fondazione Ferragamo Award" to which Slassi submitted her graduate project "Walk of Mind", she received a prize of €5,000 and the opportunity to intern at the Company's Creative Department in Florence. "Walk of Mind" features hybrid shoes that combine advanced technologies and traditional craftsmanship. The shoes are made by weaving 3D prints and vegan leather that is processed with a soaking method and are customized to fit the foot's natural form. Slassi previously received an award for this project two year ago at the prestigious RESHAPE Competition.
In the "Lotto Sport" category, Slass was selected along with two other designers to design a shoe for the Lotto Sport Company inspired by the brand's iconic tennis shoe. She received a prize of €1,000 in this category.
