Mark Fast is a world-renowned luxury knitwear designer.
Finding inspiration in London, Mark studied at Central Saint Martins and completed his BA there and went on to complete his MA in February 2008. His signature designs push the boundaries of modern knitwear technology. He has devised innovative stitching techniques, blending lycra with the finest luxury textiles. Everything is knitted by hand on domestic knitting machines and his work is formed onto the body as he knits. He sees knitwear as sculpture, where he experiments with different volumes to create a sensual silhouette.
Mark Fast has earned numerous accolades including a four season sponsorship from TOPSHOP and the British Fashion Council. He has collaborated with Pinko, Christian Louboutin, Swarovski, Topshop, Aldo Rise, Mawi, Woolmark and created costumes for the Crazy Horse Paris.
He also created a diffusion line called Faster by Mark Fast which incorporates his sexy intricate stitch work into hosiery, catsuits and underpinnings.
His intricate and handcrafted dresses are worn by celebrity fans such as Tilda Swinton, Grace Jones, Rihanna, Nicki Minaj, Jessie J, Rita Ora, Ciara , Kylie Minogue, Chrysta Bell, Yasmine Petty and Julia Restoin-Roitfeld.
