Capsule is:

Capsule is the premiere gathering of the finest apparel and accessories brands from around the world. More than a tradeshow, the brands who participate in Capsule make up a community that is shaping the future fashion landscape. In our case, different really is better.

Capsule launched in 2007 as the brainchild of fashion consultancy BPMW to develop a global network of like-minded people who conceptualize, create, desire, and buy the clothes that epitomize a new vision of forward progress. Artisans, strategists, devotees, and style leaders converge on Capsule in three cities, ten times per year.

Capsule is known for its global curation of the world’s most directional designers and the brands that participate in Capsule are among some of the most prestigious, respected and coveted fashion labels. Our team scours the world hand selecting only the best of the best – from the independent emerging designers, to more established labels who push the envelope of design, craft manship and quality.

Thanks to our strong edit and distinct point of view Capsule is a favorite of many of the world’s most respected retailers in search of what’s new and next.

The Capsule shows are small and intimate, and a sense of community is felt throughout the shows. Our focus is to make the job of the retailer simple, by presenting the most compelling brands, in a relaxed, businesslike environment.
