Mark Fast gets Faster

At London Fashion Week in September, there was one item that we Style Hunted again and again… the webbed tights Mark Fast gave away to his lucky catwalk guests in goodie bags. They even appeared on eBay not long after the show and desperate fans were bidding for them at outrageous prices! The demand inspired Mark to make some more samples and these have now grown into a diffusion line called Faster (nice!). ‘We thought maybe someone would use them for a photo shoot,’ Mark revealed. ‘But the demand [from buyers] has been great.’ The lower-priced range of leggings, minidresses and cropped tops in nylon and elastane knits will make the designer much more accessible to a wider range of fashion-hungry shoppers, which is the aim of the collection set to launch this spring. ‘These are the things you can wear with the main collection, as underpinnings, or by themselves.’ With his main season dresses reaching prices in the £3,000 range, we might just have to start with the leggings!
