About Capsule

Capsule’s editors: Kelly Bertrand, Emma Clifton & Alice O’Connell.

Founded in 2020

Once upon a time…

…We were all at the helm of some of New Zealand’s best magazines - New Zealand Woman’s Weekly, The Australian Women’s Weekly and NEXT. We all loved our jobs fiercely; magazines, writing and editing were our passions, our lifeblood, and our livelihoods. We all had our dream jobs until our company folded during the 2020 Covid-19 pandemic, taking with it 237 jobs. After a few weeks of tears, too many carbs and so much wine that the neighbours judged us on recycling day, we all realised what we wanted to do - write. So Capsule was born, a site for the savvy, strong, intelligent and stylish woman who wants to know what’s happening, what’s trending, what’s new, and what’s worth talking about. A true capsule collection, we aim to deliver a site which will be the ultimate curated collection of everything our audience needs to help them feel successful, informed and entertained.
