Indeed the designs, hairstyles and makeup palettes et al of RAFW are inexhaustible points for both inspiration and discussion, however, what about the accessories? Despite their possibility of being seen as the most intricate and customised detail of a designer’s repertoire, we often forget their power to both transform and enhance an outfit. Hence, let us look at the designs both on and off the runway - these are the accessories of RAFW.

From vintage denim at Stolen Girlfriends Club to cowboy boots at Saint Augustine Academy, RAFW went a little western but with a lot of flair.
