SA Fashion Week officially started with a bit of chaos.

The reception area of the Crowne Plaza Hotel was a mini-stampede as fashionistas scrambled their way in to get their tickets last night.

94.7 Highveld Stereo DJ Anele Mdoda was one of the people complaining about the ticketing system. “They really need to find a way to do this,” she said, after having to wait in long, disorganised queues for her ticket.

But when the show eventually started, the first viewing – which included Stoned Cherrie and Suzaan Heyns – was filled to the brim, with some fashion lovers standing by the door. As much as the fashion lines were of interest to those in attendance, stylists also came to watch hair trends.

The natural look dominated the runway with styles that are wearable even off the runway. Said Motions’ hair stylists Nthato Mashishi: “The biggest trend on the streets is braids. It’s the biggest trend, even on the global stage.”

Mashishi said the trend was the result of a return to natural hair. She said braids were “not only for soul sisters any more”.

“There is so much that one can do with it. There is the Swiss plait, the French plait. It can even be worn as a mohawk.”

Some of the hair trends spotted in the Sheer Glamour Show were the Swiss plait, straight hair as well as a braided mohawk.

The fluffy and messy up-do made an appearance in the foyer, where some models showed off hair trends to look out for this season.
