Since 2010, FTY organized the International Master and Contest for future knitwear designers.

Once a year, students from the best fashion schools all around the world are invited in Italy for a short, but effective, training program on materials and textile processes.

Each July, during Pitti Immagine Filati trade fair, they participate in a fashion contest that awards the best idea and outfit.
