Mark Fast: the name to know

02 October 2008


When we asked you to rate our top 10 looks from London Fashion Week from shows that included Christopher Kane, Luella and Jaeger we'd never have guessed your favourite would be new designer on the block Mark Fast whose show for On/Off marked his very first season. But since you fell in love with his black knitted look as much as us we thought we'd give you the back-story. The Canadian born Mark, 27, completed his MA at Central St Martins only last February, specialising in body-con knitwear. Each piece is laboriously hand knitted using a domestic sewing machine using a mix of viscose, angora and wool. The result? Seriously fierce body-armour knitwear - hardly surprising considering he's spent three seasons designing knitwear at Bora Aksu and one year under Lanvin's Alber Elbaz. Check out other looks from his catwalk below...
