Africa Fashion International (AFI) Fashion Week day one is done, and as we look forward to the next two days, these are the hot accessories and beauty trends we’ve spotted so far.
Designer Eric Raisina from Madagascar shows a textured corset. As the corset aesthetics is on the trends list, this is a piece that you could add to your look. The designer added a bright knit belt to add to the statement piece.
The feathered beauty look has once again hit the runway, as seen before on the Valentino Spring/Summer 2019 runway. David Tlale created his own look with black feathers on the models who walked the runway.

Under the theme African Fashion Unite, these guests accessorised with a statement handbag. Handbags have become more elaborate with interesting textures, shapes and colours – and a boombox-shaped handheld bag is right on trend.
Speaking on statement accessories, designer Marianne Fassler had her models walk down the runway with ornamental cattle head necklaces around their necks.
A trend spotted on the runway that will help as summer hits us is the flora as hair accessories.
