London: A master of knitted creations, this season Mark Fast branched out from his comfort zone of intricately crafted bodycon sweater dresses. With new materials such as leather and chiffon and a fresh set of silhouettes that included boxy shifts and floor-sweeping gowns, it became clear that the Canadian designer is ready to be known for more than just his knitwear. It was the soft sculptural details that truly showcased his talent, with 3D striping, frothy ruffled hemlines and voluminously layered horizontal pleats highlighting the wide realm of possibilities the designer explored through advanced knitting techniques and imaginative approach.
