Melbelle Gingham Plaid Off-The-Shoulder Mini Dress 

Meeting other ‘go getting’ women and learning about their journey to where they are today is one of my favourite parts of running Melbelle. As we continue to build the brand, I can’t wait to meet more of our readers, learn about what adventures life has taken them on, what their passions are and, of course, to see how they style our products.  This month we caught up with graphic designer and social media art director, Lotten Sheppard. If you’ve scrolled through our Instagram feed, there’s a good chance you’ll have already spotted a picture of Lotten in our Gingham Plaid Mini Dress.  I caught up with her to learn more about her and of course, to share with you some of her fun bohemian-inspired styles. Enjoy!


Currently working for a variety of brands as a graphic designer and art director of social media shoots,  Lotten has always had a passion and flair for design.  She enjoys the process of creating content, whether that’s for websites, social or print.

Using her skills developed through her career, Lotten decided to launch her fashion themed Instagram account during lockdown. She had always wanted to start a fashion account, but up until this point, the fear of what other people would think prevented her from doing so. Fast-forward a year and Lotten beams that it was ‘one of the best decisions I made’ as it has opened the door to an abundance of opportunities that she never dreamed would happen.

The sunshine in Lotten’s life is Coco, the little sausage dog with a big personality!
