Sarsparilly was founded in 2009 by designer Maria Murphy after completing the NEIS program and has always been about fun design and stand out prints. She hopes that wearers would always feel like they were wearing a part of Sarsparilly's own 'wonderland' and is inspired by blue skies, green grass, flamingos, kewpie dolls, carousels and candy (and anything else that makes you smile).
Sarsparilly are known for their cotton print dresses that reference pop culture, whimsy and colour. Maria is inspired by real vintage silhouettes and reproduces these with hand picked prints. Each dress is designed and made by Maria and her small team in Newcastle NSW.
Most fabrics are cotton based and are made using prints by small independent designers or Maria's own prints. All fabrics are beautiful weight and dresses are well made to last you a life time. A Sarsparilly piece is a statement piece, but you can (and should) wear it every day.
