It simply isn’t a fashion week without some sort of controversy. This London Fashion Week spring 2010, it is Mark Fast who has created the most buzz so far. It seems the designer got more than he bargained for when he cast three size 14 models for his show, prompting two of his design team to quit. Now, reports are rife that his stylist did not resign but was actually fired because of their position on Fast’s model choice.
But back to the collection itself -figure-hugging frocks were all the rage as Fast’s modern knitwear was paraded on bodies of all shapes and sizes. It was a welcomed sight, and further emphasised LFW’s crackdown on size zero models. Micro mini dresses were given the spindly spider web treatment, revealing lots and lots of flesh. Citing Erin Brockovich as a reference, it wasn’t difficult to see how his super-fitted sexy numbers suited the more curvaceous amongst us. More of the same please!
