Salasai New York bound

Since hopping across the ditch New Zealand fashion label Salasai has grown from strength to strength.

For starters the Perth-based brand, which has built a reputation for its unique and beautiful prints, has just launched Salasai Home. A collection of limited edition duvets, pillow cases and cushions imprinted with elements from Salasai’s winter collection Liberte et D’Amour.

Next stop is New York for Salasai designer Kirsha Whitcher following an invitation by Sydney-based Fashion Palette to join Australian designers Alice McCall, Keepsake and Cameo on the catwalk at New York Fashion Week in September as part of a group show.
