Capsule Paris Women’s plans to join the apparel showcase Paris Sur Mode Tuileries as a show-within-show for the spring 2017 season, which takes place Sept. 29 to Oct. 2 in Paris.
Both Paris Sur Mode Tuileries, which focuses on women’s ready-to-wear, and Premiere Classe Tuileries, which focuses on accessories, will now host Capsule and its lifestyle and fashion labels.
Capsule Paris plans to enlist about 50 advance contemporary brands to participate in the four-day show. Previously Capsule Paris showed at the Tapis Rouge in Paris for a three-day event.
“In an ever-changing trade fair landscape it is an exciting honor and fantastic move for our community to join forces with Paris Sur Mode Tuileries and Premiere Classe Tuileries exhibitions,” said Deirdre Maloney, cofounder of Capsule.
Etienne Cochet, chief executive officer of Paris Sur Mode Tuileries and Premiere Classe Tuileries, added the combined show “will prove more enticing to attendees and give them good reason to spend some of their valuable time” at the event.
Paris Sur Mode Tuileries, along with Capsule, and Don’t Believe the Hype, the laboratory show focused on emerging talent, will launch together in an exhibition space in the Tuileries. The exhibition will take place in front of the Place de la Concorde.
Capsule was created in 2007 by New York-based fashion consultancy BPMW and was acquired by Reed Exhibitions in 2013.
Paris Sur Mode Tuileries is a global trade show featuring brands and designers of women’s ready-to-wear during Paris Fashion Weeks. Premiere Classe Tuileries serves as a top-end showcase for accessory designers.
