s_Capsule Capsule is a fashion trade show, where buyers from boutiques and stores, and media like me, wander around checking out what will be available from small, independent designers during this season and next. It's a huge event, with acres of tables and booths showing jewelry, accessories and clothing. By the end of it, you're salivating. And frustrated, because nothing is for sale to you as a customer! Look, don't touch. Look I did, and I took careful notes and pictures on all the coolest ethical wares I can't wait to see in stores a few months from now. Some you can even snatch up right now! Here are my favorites:
