Open Call: 2015 Origin Passion and Beliefs Trade Show in Italy

Origin Passion Beliefs
via Not Just A Label

Origin Passion and Beliefs is looking for emerging apparel and jewelry designers from around the globe for their 2015 fair. The event is a partnership between Fiera di Vicenza, the leading organizer of premium jewelry shows and retailer Not Just A Label (NJAL).

Now in it’s second year, the trade show was created to revive the Italian industrial and artisan sector while connecting up-and-coming talent with resources. Participating designers will be exposed to international buyers and press, attend educational workshops, events and also meet other designers from around the world. Those selected will attend the event in Italy, free of cost besides an admission fee.

How it Works

Designers will be chosen on their promise to shape the future by NJAL. They are looking for talent that has successfully pushed the boundaries in terms of design, use of materials and innovation. Labels that participated last year include Ayaka Nishi, Chromat, Williams-Handmade and others. 

What’s included

  • A 12 square meter booth, providing an ideal setting for showcasing your brand
  • Art direction and installations
  • Booth design, fitting and setup, as well as dismantling
  • Accommodations in a 4 star hotel
  • Return flights from wherever you are from
  • Airport transfers and transfers to and from the Fair throughout the event

To apply, complete and/or update your NJAL profile with your latest collections, information and contact details. NJAL’s scouting team will handpick 100 designers in November 2014 and contact you directly if you have been chosen.
