Love | So Fast


Psynopsis Mark Fast DressYou can't really call yourself a knit freak and ignore Mark Fast who's got the knack of combining lycra and wool to create something that is being described as 'sculpting tension and volume'. So naturally I hung out with his designs at the showroom in Somerset House a lot, salivating over this carpety creation which nearly makes me want to marry again – just so I could wear it as a wedding dress… All my bridesmaids would get to wear dress #2 - and no one would go home alone.

hahahaha, what a wedding that would be! seriously - can you imagine?

how did he (or whoever crafted it for him) do the first dress? gosh do i admire those artisans working for designers like - well, fast. or chanel! countless hours of knitting, sewing, stitching...

SabinePsynopsis said...

I read that he develops his designs on - wait for it - his domestic knitting machine... I actually played around with lycra at CSM. It's amazing material to knit, so stretchy... You could actually knit your own tights if you wanted to.

LMAO!!! You crack me up, Sabine! But I'm not sure I'd want to be a bridesmaid at your 2nd wedding with all my lady bits hanging out ;o) Now the first dress...well that's a beauty! I'd gladly wear that one!
