Mark Fast – AW11February 24, 2011
Mark Fast is all about the knit, it’s his signature and trademark, so it was a little surprising to see the runway filling with leather and chiffon looks. Whilst the knit wear is ever progressive and hugs to the girls body like a second skin, the introduction of bigger sculptured pieces such as the accordion cardigan, oversized shoulder dress and the full length gown were stunning. The leather was just hard to read. The shape was simple, perhaps too much so. I realise you can’t knit with leather, although I could be wrong, so perhaps he is working on a new technique for next season and this was a slow introduction. I do hope so.
