Maria Murphy

You know when someone has a burning desire, it doesn't matter what gets in their way, they make it happen. This sums up Maria Murphy. From 11, she knew she wanted to be a fashion designer but life conspired to put up many road blocks. Until 2016, when she convinced her husband to use the money from the sale of their home to start Sarsparilly. Since then she's built a huge following for her colourful and gorgeous designs. It all started from four dresses and a love of fashion.
