CapsuleThe Capsule trade show, which was acquired by Reed Exhibitions earlier this year, has made a number of new hires in retail relations, sales and marketing.

Kashia Wolf, a former international retail manager for Theory, joins Capsule as the new retail relations manager for menswear. Barbara Torasso, formerly of Reebok, will be retail relations manager for women’s.

Lillian Kye has been hired as a sales associate for the Capsule shows. Kye has worked as an account executive for Steven Alan Showroom and Peregrine Showroom and was a national sales executive for Eugenia Kim.

Capsule’s new owner, trade show operator Reed Exhibitions, has added Cristian Robalino and Nando Casinelli to the Capsule marketing team and Andrea Gorrie as client services manager.

“Our S/S 2015 shows will truly represent a new phase for Capsule,” said co-founder Deirdre Maloney. “We are really excited to be able to offer an additional layer of resources to both our vendor and retailer community. We’re confident that this will bring the entire Capsule experience to the next level.”

Capsule’s next shows are in Berlin, Germany on July 8-9, followed by New York (men’s) from July 21-22. Capsule Las Vegas runs August 18-20.
