Mark Fast has been one of my favorite newer designers for the past
couple of seasons. Having just graduated Central Saint Martins in 2008,
the Canadian-born knitwear designer has been a rising star in London.
Unbeknownstly but cleverly so, he stirred up a bit of controversy when
he decided to use plus-sized models in his S/S 2010 runway show.
I was further impressed by him when he declined to lend clothes to
Lady Gaga, his soft-spoken voice stating:
“My work is about a lifestyle. It’s not fast-food fashion. It’s
not about trends, it’s about classic, it’s about the body, it’s about
beauty. Maybe that gets lost in the picture with certain celebrities.”
With no disrespect to the Fame Monster, his clothes truly deserve to
shine for themselves.
