A collaboration between First Nations artist Shanai Kellett and Blue Illusion is helping to raise money for World Vision Australia while celebrating the coast along beautiful Boon Wurrung/Bunurong country.
Shanai was commissioned to paint Coral Coast Moonlight by the fashion retailer, which has produced it on a premium silk scarf, packaged in a box that tells the story of the artwork and artist.
World Vision Ambassador and Indigenous model Samantha Harris modelled the scarf and 7 per cent of sales go to World Vision Australia’s First Nations programs.
Shanai, a proud Yorta Yorta/Juru descendant said the design was inspired by her surroundings and their history.
Blue Illusion has partnered with World Vision Australia since 1998 and sponsors a child for every store. It holds an annual ‘styling workshop’ with 7 per cent of sales going to World Vision. This year on May 26, Blue Illusion sales will support World Vision Australia’s First Nations programs. Customers can also request an in-store styling session that can be booked directly online.
The scarf will retail for $149.99 and is available from 9 May in stores or online at www.blueillusion.com
