The Axis show, a technically separate biannual show of about 200 brands that shared space with Capsule in New York since its launch in 2015 will be absorbed by Capsule and turned into an area dedicated to sportswear, activewear, athleisure and intimates collections. Show attendees will be able to see what the new concept is alike at Capsule Women’s New York (September 17-19) andthe recently-announced new show edition in Los Angeles (October 17-18), both showcasing spring/summer 2017 collections.

“By incorporating Axis as a well‐rounded special section within the show, we can provide retailers with a more streamlined shopping experience, and a deeper selection of the women’s market’s hottest categories right now; from sportswear to accessories to activewear, home, beauty and more,” stated Deirdre Maloney, co-founder of Capsule.

Capsule and Axis are part of the Reed Fashion Group, owned by Reed Exhibitions.
