Brand：“Salut, ca va ?”－ a casual and warm “Hello, how are you?” revolves around us every day, and the meaning stays the same regardless which hour of the day it is being said. Just as our brand stays true to preserve timelessness and remain unaffected by perceived trends, we believe it is most important to create pieces that fit our patrons. Established in Macau, a city enriched by Continental-European cultures, we hope to reflect this uniqueness through the French phrase, and also the vintage, lace designs in our feminine pieces, infused with romanticism. One of the local Macau fashion brands, “Salut, ca va ?” is a women’s wear established in 2010, with a signature style in feminism and vintage romanticism,various collections featuring casual wear and attires perfect for special occasions.“Salut, ca va ?” offers tailor made services for male and female clients. Some of our creations include bridal gowns, cocktail dresses and special requested outfits for artists. In 2014, “Salut, ca va ?” began its own workshop to further evolve as an independent fashion brand, with an added focus on providing image consultation and costume design for clients including associations and corporations.
