Mark Fast: Challenging the face of fashion
The cult-leader of cobwebby, knitted mini dresses, Mark Fast has been accused of stirring up self-publicity after his shock decision (not really that shocking) to use three size 12-14 models in his SS10 runway collection of SS10 at London Fashion Week on Saturday. After a rather diva-style storm out of both his stylist and director, the St Martin’s graduate stuck by his convictions, adding that “"We wanted women to know that they don't have to be a size zero to wear a Mark Fast dress. In fact, curvier women can look even better in one”. It is actually quite refreshing to see a few super-sexy, curvaceous women enjoying their moment at LFW, rather than resigning themselves to the store windows of Evans. But, whether you like it or not, it seems that the times are changing, and the change definitely likes chips!
