After heading the womenswear design for Mooks Clothing Co, Kirsha Whitcher returned to New Zealand and launched her label, Salasai.
The design is conceptual, telling stories that are often dark, always beautiful and lined with meaningful contradictions. Whitcher interprets fabric to create silhouettes that are strong and tailored with subtle details of a modest feminine yesteryear. Intelligent cuts and meticulous use of colour enable unisex pieces that compliment the form and command a style of genderless androgyny. Each range is innovative, wearable and modern balanced with textural fabrics with a demand of quality, Salasai has been a fixture at New Zealand’s Fashion Week and continues to garner national and international accolades from the likes of UK Grazia, Yen, Frankie, Fashion Toast, Fashion Quaterly NZ and www.vogue.com.au.
Salasai relocated to Western Australia in December 2011. A brave move for Salasai to expand its market and explore more fully the potential of an international market.
