Salasai opened day three of New Zealand Fashion Week with a collection by designer Kirsha Whitcher that explored a moneyed Western aesthetic. Think rich Dallas heiresses in head-to-toe linen with the glossiest wine red pouts possible. The styling by Dan Ahwa was perfect and on point, with light-handed elements like dried grass here and there, and a couple of cowboy hats (paired with ladylike headscarves of course).
One of the best parts of the show was probably the final walk through - as there were no outfit changes, you saw the whole collection in its entirety together on the catwalk. A rare thing, but something I wish we saw more often.
