After a great NZFW2011 the Salasai team are back home and finished off their selling appointments with HOA. We asked Kirsha if she could give us her favourite picks from the collection and a little background to the range.
EWH played a DJ gig in the bay recently and on their way to AKL stopped in to grab some tees and things. We sat down in the noisy shop for a real quick chat before they jumped in a van and headed north.
