Today, we are shining a light on artist Yarli Creative. Little Party Dress are proud of our super special collaboration of exclusive prints with Yarli Creative, and the incredible First Nations artist behind Yarli Creative, Madison Connors.

Maddy is an artist, an advocate and a proud Yorta Yorta, Dja Dja Wurrung and Gamilaroi woman.

Maddy tells the creation story of her art piece for the Yarli Creative Collection she created for us,

“In a world where there is no certainty who can we rely on?

We create a village throughout our lives and each village, through each milestone, looks vastly different.

We surround ourselves with likeminded women. We who lift us up, who have our backs, who empower us and bring out our ROAWWWW!!!

Sisters supporting sisters. Tiddas supporting tiddas. The bond cannot be broken.

Even though occasionally there might be disagreements, let’s not forget the reasons why we connect in the first place.

Life is too hard to be mad. Life is too hard to not remember the values you share are true. Tiddas for life.”

More about Maddy

"My identity is what drives me. It’s something that is within me and comes from the heart. My connection to my environmental surroundings is my blood line and vein to this country and the community which runs deep within. I come from a strong line of women and am following in their footsteps. I aim to embody their full form on this earth and strive to make my mob proud of the work that I create and achieve.

I was born and raised in Shepparton, spending the majority of my life living on my grandmother’s Country. These days, I live on Wurundjeri Country in the eastern suburbs of Melbourne. I live with my supportive and loving partner Andrew, my strong, creative and outgoing five-year-old son Marley, and my beautiful, quiet and happy nearly two-year old daughter, Yindi."
