Who is Southern Belle?


Arabella Dowd ( or Belle to some) is a traditional Melbourne born and bred girl. Starting her career in Hair and Makeup within the film and television industry for five years, saw Arabella working alongside the likes of Sir Anthony Hopkins, Russell Crowe and Toni Collete to name a few. This was the best platform to really learn the art of understanding what a good personal relationship involves professionally.

Enjoying an extensive stint travelling the world, Arabella returned home to start with Crown Casino VIP services for both Hotel and gaming. Long hours, travel and the never ending requests coming from some of the worlds most renowned casino high rollers to the CEO of Time Warner US to the President of Toyota and directly to the Crown CEO and owner.

After further training in Las Vegas at Steve Wynn resort MGM Grand, Arabella then moved into the role of Director of Guest Relations for Crown Hotel overseeing the prestigious Villa Suites and their VIP guests such as Billy Joel, Elton John and Whitney Houston. Talk about memories!

With discretion, professionalism and a strong focus on customer service, Arabella continued in this role until she started her own family.

Four years previously to starting Southern Belle in 2014, Arabella embraced a new challenge at one of Melbourne’s finest architect firms. Belle’s role comprised of supporting the three directors and the firm’s team, organising product presentations and assisting in administration duties.

Arabella has an innate ability to get things done on time, every time and there is not much she won’t do in order to achieve the right result.
