Despite being based in Perth, Kirsha Whitcher's roots remain in New Zealand. After launching her brand Salasai in her home town of Napier in 2006, it's been a highlight on the NZFW calendar over the years.

Along with co-designer Kelly Watson, the brand is taking a different approach at NZFW this year with a digital launch, working with a range of creative content makers to roll out their interpretation of the new collection.

Fittingly, Kirsha shares what makes her tick when she's plugged in.
