mark fast look 1 266x400 Mark Fast

I love Canadians. I am always impressed with an artist that comes from a Canadian womb.  Mark Fast is a 27 year old Canada native clothing designer. His designs  are particularly unique because he specializes in knitwear. He not only specializes in it, he has redefined it, creating amazing stitching techniques.  The garments are knit by hand using a domestic knitting machine and formed onto the body as they are knit.  In these samples of his work you can see the detailing is out of this world, and the visible nipples aren’t that bad either.  All of the designs are fresh and breezy, great for a yacht or swanky pool party. Some of them more contemporary in their patterns and others more classically inspired.  The models wearing the knits are clearly perfect for the designs. However, I cringe at the thought of a more rotund woman getting her hands on one of these dresses. Nonetheless, these really are beautiful masterpieces.
