I did go to the Salasai show. It was great – part runway, part presentation, each model took their turn at walking through a teeming crowd, and then taking their place on a platform, one by one, until all 12 models and looks stood together. It was simple and impactful, the crowd jostled and ducked and manoeuvred to try and the best shot because they knew what they were looking at was brilliant. I feel like a lot of brands try to be cool, but Salasai just is, and effortlessly so. Once again, the end of the day was rounded out on a high note.
I took a number of shots, but none of them were anywhere near as good as these images that were sent through about an hour after the show, so I’m gonna show these to you instead. Thanks Public Library, y’all saved my no-good-pictures-havin-bloggin-ass. These pics are so mean.
