You might think that because knitwear designer Mark Fast grew up in Winnipeg that his garments would be warm and cosy but he’s created some of the chicest and sexist knitwear around! Think corsetry, Elizabethan/Joan of Arc and a hint of S&M. Mark knits everything by hand on a domestic knitting machine.
Mark studied fashion design at Seneca College in Toronto. He then moved to London and did a foundation in Fashion Design at London College of Fashion. He did a BA and MA in Fashion Design with Knitwear at Central St. Martins. He also worked with Bora Aksu for a few seasons.
Mark Fast will be showing at London Fashion Week on February 24th!
Mark is presently living in London.
In Canada you can purchase Mark Fast at Holt Renfrew and in London at Browns.
