KELLI WHARTON As long as I can remember I have wanted to design and create. Through my journey and my experience I hope to inspire other women to do the same. I am an intensely passionate person when it comes to what I do. To me TALULAH is not just a job, it is a lifestyle which I live, breath and act. The TALULAH woman is feminine, creative and independent. She dreams big and builds a path in life that is her own. She is committed to living gratefully each day and practices this through a balance of creativity, health, wellbeing, action and love. She has learnt what she wants, what she loves and what her skills and passions are and builds these values into her life to express who she is and connect with others. I am driven by creating wearable designs that women love. Design is how I express who I am and the passion behind me as a person, what I am inspired by, what I love and what I live for. I created TALULAH in 2005 to do just this, and am now lucky enough to surround myself and work daily with a team of creative women who live and work these values with me.The feeling that I get from doing what I love and watching the TALULAH brand grow, continues to inspire me daily and through this development TALULAH releases beautiful collections for women all over the world. My design influence is a collection of the people, places and things around me. I live and work in Byron Bay Australia; the water and beautiful surrounds inspire me daily along with the TALUALH team I work with, my husband, my family, art, colour, flowers and music. Everything that we create for our brand and the women who wear it can be traced back to to the things my team and I love and are inspired by in our daily lives. I believe colour, expression and will to be your own woman in the face of diversity is important. As a female designer I take this passion into all areas of my life. At TALULAH our prints, colours and designs are constructed by women, for women who share in the joy of being feminine, love to style, express and share their personality and talents through their wardrobe.

Kelli Wharton TALULAH Creative Director

As we move towards TALULAH’s tenth year in business, I continue to demonstrate what I have learnt by living well, being myself and creating. Life is a journey. Creativity is a passion. And TALULAH is a lifestyle.
