My fashion and retail journey began early when I worked for my parents in their businesses. Making lolly bags for the Milk Bar (Deli if you are from Western Australia!!) jumping off the truck to deliver milk for my Mum's milk round.
I spent years in customer service in the fast food industry, before stints as a casual retail assistant in fashion boutiques.
I was a High School Teacher, Swimming Instructor and also a Personal trainer!!
Yes you read that right. Talk about career flip!!
Starting back into fashion I created, designed, plotted world domination with my sister Jennie as children's fashion brand- Moppit. This lead to multiple retail stores and selling our brand around the world in department stores, boutiques from London to Spain to NY and back again.
After many years the business was sold and I time spent time working in Australian fashion brand head offices learning the corporate side of things too..
I have now worked with over 150 brands from Damselfly, Nancybird, Rodeo Show, Tightology, Marmoset Found and many more.
From fashion, ceramics, footwear, candles and so many things in between!!

Before working with Melissa I was brand new in the business world and had no real direction in where I wanted to go. After our session with her I walked away with absolute clarity on how I am going to move forward, what I need to execute and how to effectively communicate my brand message. I would highly recommend Thelotco if you are new to the business world or want to restyle or revamp your existing brand!
wow! i walked away with absolute clarity and direction in super quick 3 hour session!
