Astounding the crowds at London Fashion Week today, Mark Fast showed his spring/summer 2012 collection and proved himself the thread of British design, with pieces that showed his talent to be interwoven by skilled craftsmanship and genius.

 

 

 

The gold through to citrus-hued collection, comprised of chic separates that included pencil skirts and swimwear, unfolded in stages of shade – sandy colours made way to blinding brights and neons, which all went someway in capturing the desert mirage/tropical exoticism that inspired the designer.

All pieces – unsurprisingly of Mark Fast – were knitted, crocheted, woven or macrame; tassels swung low along the catwalk, cascading from dresses and skirts, while other pieces were woven to reveal sheer panels and plunging necklines.

 

Overall, Fast gave range; there was a complete variety of shapes and styles, from gowns with trailing trains to cute tea dresses, box-jacket sets and ruffled hemlines – most accentuated by gold accessories, adding a rich finishing touch to the bold designs.

Mark said his collection aimed to “create movement over the body to emulate the force of a sand storm,” which most who viewed the show would have felt from the way Fast’s creations swept across the catwalk, gathering momentum with each design and stirring the tent’s atmosphere.

Didn’t make it down to front row? Don’t worry – we hope you enjoyed the show FAB “front row” style. We just hope the images alone will do Fast’s FAB showcase justice.
