Mark Fast Knitwear.

“I believe that there is a growing attention to craftsmanship in fashion these days, as opposed to quick-fix disposable pieces. I am focusing on timeless classics.” 
I have become slightly obsessed with the new wave of knitwear designers. It is interesting to see the scope knitwear design can cover in comparing Mark Fast's work to Sandra Backlund's. 
Mark Fast's innovative designs are beautiful, sexy pieces which flatter the female form. He finds inspiration from the past and translates historical costume and style into contemporary pieces. 
Having worked on knitwear for Bora Aksu for a year after graduating from Central Saint Martin's, Mark had his very own Fashion Week in February at London and received rave reviews. His clothes look so flattering for woman, I want them all.
