Blue Illusion - World Vision Blue Illusion - World Vision

The Blue Illusion team pays our respects and honours Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Elders past, present and emerging. We acknowledge the stories, songlines, traditions and living cultures of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples on this land and celebrate their continuing connection to the lands, waters, and skies.

Collaborating for a cause

When a dream comes to life, the world is a better place. This year, we are thrilled to announce our 2nd dream collaboration with Yorta Yorta/Juru artist Shanai Kellett that will continue to raise money for First Nations communities.

Shanai’s premium silk scarf and beaded handbag featuring her artwork, Colours of Country, is now available exclusively in our Blue Illusion boutiques.

Both come beautifully packaged in a gift box that tells the story of the artwork as well as of the artist herself.  Each purchase of this product will see 7% of proceeds donated to support First Nation’s communities in need through World Vision.



Shanai Kellett is a proud Yorta Yorta/Juru decedent living on Boon Wurrung/Bunurong Country. Growing up in an artistic family, Shanai learnt about traditional Indigenous art processes through her artist mother and over time cultivated her own unique craft, infusing traditional dot work with colour. Kellett draws on the symbols of Country, her Grandparent’s Country and through her work aims to create a dialogue in which Indigenous and non-Indigenous people can continue to reconcile in harmony with one another.


Colours of Country is an ode to the native landscape and the incredible joy it brings to us all. Through pops of pastel blues and warm tones of pinks and corals, Shanai draws from her love of country with symbolic etchings that celebrate nature as a whole – echoing the beauty of kangaroo and emu tracks, waterholes, shrubs and rock formations. In every sense, emphasising the importance of respecting Aboriginal culture and Indigenous people’s everlasting connection to this sacred land.
